Wisconsin elementary school achieves LEED first

Lake Mills Elementary School in Lake Mills, Wis., has received LEED platinum certification from the U.S. Green Building Council in recognition of its environmentally friendly design and construction, reports the website American School & University. The $18.7 million facility opened in 2014 and replaced the existing elementary in the Lake Mills district. The district worked with Eppstein Uhen Architects to create a sustainably designed facility with energy-efficient options. To reach the goal, the project took part in a beta test for the Green Building Council's new LEED v4 pilot program. As the first school to earn platinum under the new rating system, Lake Mills Elementary School can lay claim to be the greenest school in the nation.
