The Interdisciplinary Science Building (ISB) for energy research at Brookhaven Lab, which was awarded Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification for its energy-efficient and environmentally sustainable design, construction, and operations
The Interdisciplinary Science Building (ISB) at Brookhaven Lab—which has received LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council—is a world-class facility for cutting-edge research, but being green isn’t rocket science.
Several strategies that earned the ISB its LEED Gold certification can help reduce energy usage and make any building more environmentally friendly, including:
ISB Project Manager Peggy Caradonna and her team oversaw the building’s design and construction at Brookhaven Lab.

But one decision at a time, we can all pitch in to be good stewards of the environment.”
