Greenest building in the WORLD....

This is the highest LEED Platinum rated building on the planet, called the Aldo Leopold Legacy Center. Now for some nice news, this building uses SIPs! :-D


As if I haven't cheered loudly enough about SIPs.

"Considered by many as the father of wildlife management and of the United States’ wilderness system, Aldo Leopold was a conservationist, forester, philosopher, educator, writer, and outdoor enthusiast," according to his site.

Read about this extraordinary building at:

It uses 71% less energy than a building just built to code. That's a huge difference!
