The “Tink” Takes the Gold

Case Western Reserve University’s Tinkham Veale University Center (The “Tink”)  has received LEED Gold certification, well exceeding the project’s minimum requirement of LEED Silver. Congratulations to the project architect, Perkins+Will and Donley’s construction management team led by project executive, Greg Consolo, for their efforts and handwork to reach this achievement!  

To earn LEED Gold certification, the Tinkham Veale University Center had to earn between 60 and 79 points under the LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) green building rating system. LEED components include a live, green roof, FSC certified wood panels, recycled carpet tiles, recycled glass terrazzo floor, structural steel with recycled content, chilled beam cooling system, radiant heat flooring system, double glass curtainwall with passive air system, and an automated, solar-intelligent shade system.  You can read more details about Donley’s work on the Tink project here.
