In Englewood, Colorado, Semple Brown Design builds the first #LEED Platinum certified dining hall in the US

: The new dining hall for this college preparatory day school for grades 6-12 features a cafeteria, event space, kitchen, private offices, conference rooms, a loading dock, an orchard, and a student garden. Over 75 percent of the former dining hall’s structural elements were reused and about 1125.45 tons (85 percent) of the on-site generated construction waste was diverted from the landfill. Two bee hives help pollinate an orchard that provides fruit for meals, and an interior 16-square-foot living wall grows 576 plants and herbs that can also be used for cooking. After serving 700 meals to students, faculty and staff, the dining hall only generates a single bag of trash every school day.
