The International Institute for Sustainable Laboratories’ Windy City Chapter hosted an event at CannonDesign’s Chicago office to discuss the sustainable laboratory solutions for Eckerd College and Yale University.

Eckerd College’s Laura Reiser Wetzel, Ph.D., Professor of Marine Science & Geosciences was a co-speaker with CannonDesign’s Punit Jain, AIA, LEED Fellow. She gave high praise for the building’s LEED Platinum certification that includes many innovative sustainable design solutions to conserve water and energy in the hot Florida climate.

Additionally, she enjoys the daylight, and transparency throughout the building. Dr. Wetzel emphasized the “science on display” mantra that is present when students, faculty and parents walk through the main hallways. The labs are open and work is constantly displayed for all to see.
