Edmonds Community College will offer classes in its newly renovated Meadowdale Hall this fall
Originally constructed in 1978, Meadowdale may now be the college’s first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified building. The renovation included green building techniques such as: making use of natural lighting, recycling and buying local materials where possible, using less toxic building materials and processes, and including an energy monitoring system.
The college will apply for LEED green building certification for Meadowdale Hall at the Gold Level. The 27,000 square-foot building houses the college’s construction management, engineering, energy management, and visual arts (art, photography, and visual communications) programs.

Save the date. Attend the dedication of Meadowdale Hall on Nov. 9.
