The Goldring/Woldenberg Business Complex, the new home of Tulane University’s A. B. Freeman School of Business, has been certified LEED Gold by the U.S. Green Building Council for meeting the highest standards in green building.
Completed in January 2018, the GWBC is the 10th building at Tulane to receive LEED certification and the eighth to reach the LEED Gold level. The building is the first campus project to achieve storm water management credits under LEED, and it earned a special credit for its innovative approach to protecting birds: The building’s signature curved glass wall features a frit pattern in the glass that helps birds distinguish it from open air and avoid flying into the glass.
“From its inception, the Goldring/Woldenberg Business Complex was created not only to be an exceptional home for our students, faculty and staff, but also to meet Tulane University's unyielding commitment to sustainable design and construction,” said Freeman School Dean Ira Solomon. “It’s very gratifying to learn that our efforts were rewarded with this prestigious honor.”
