The $51 million renovation of Warren Hall, the Dyson School's home on Cornell's Ag Quad, has earned LEED Platinum status.
With this highest level of certification offered by the U.S. Green Building Council, Warren Hall begins its second century as an energy-efficient space that will have with a positive impact on the health and well-being of students, faculty, and staff.
Hats off to the team who helped to achieve this prestigious designation, including Cornell’s facilities staff, the building’s architects and builders, Dyson faculty and staff involved in the renovation, College administration, the CALS move team, as well as gifts and support from Dyson’s alumni and friends.
