Welcome to Green Cincinnati Education Advocacy, “to help promote Green Building in the Tri-State and provide the public with the resources needed to advocate for the U.S Green Building Council’s LEED Certification process.”
LEED project tour – University of Cincinnati’s Campus Recreation Center, LEED Certified, Monday June 8, 5:30 to 6:30 pm. Presentation is free and open to the public. Please RSVP to Chuck Lohre 513-260-9025, [email protected].
The University of Cincinnati’s Campus Recreation Center is a LEED certified building with the U.S. Green Building Council. Designed by KZF Design Inc. of Cincinnati and Thomas Mayne of Morphosis and built by Turner Construction, the center met a set of criteria for sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality. The 353,000-square-foot building received credit for a 35 percent reduction in water usage, use of recycled-content materials, a rainwater collection system, landscaping and a “green” outreach education center. It is Greater Cincinnati’s largest LEED-certified building to date.

Chuck Lohre, LEED AP (U.S. Green Building Council Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Accredited Professional) I volunteer as a Board Member and the PR/Media Chair for the Cincinnati Regional Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council but my tours and classes aren’t officially part of the Chapter’s activities. I feel the best way to promote LEED in the region is by tours of these significant buildings and it also allows me to give back to the community in thanks for the professional work we do for clients marketing sustainable products and services.
