Historic BGSU Building Renovation Achieves LEED Gold Certification

At yesterday’s DesignColumbus 2019 event, presented by USGBC Ohio and the Columbus Chapter of the Construction Specifications Institute, DesignGroup Architects and BGSU Director of Design & Construction Brian Swope presented “LEED, Labs and Lineage,” which looked at the renovation of historic Moseley Hall on the BGSU campus.

This recent renovation and modernization project transformed the 1913 building into a 21st century educational facility focused on STEM education and research. A primary focus of the renovation’s design was to use the century old building as a foundation for incorporating current sustainable design principles with a goal of achieving LEED Gold certification.

Working with DesignGroup, EMH&T provided the civil engineering design for this classroom building’s upgrades, which included new utilities (gas, steam, chilled water, domestic water, sanitary, and storm sewer). The building has officially received LEED Gold Certification from the US Green Building Council.

Presented annually, DesignColumbus is an opportunity to learn and engage in the transformation of the Central Ohio built environment to be more healthy, prosperous and sustainable and attracts hundreds of professionals from throughout the building industry.
