This spring, the Business Leadership Building became the third LEED certified building on campus, joining UNT’s Gold-level certified Life Sciences Complex and Platinum-level certified Apogee Stadium.

Home to the College of Business, the new building’s cutting-edge features include a securities trading room with a dozen Bloomberg terminals and a stock ticker, an executive board room, 24 classrooms, a café, computer labs, a rooftop garden and courtyard, and an entire floor for faculty offices and meeting spaces.

The Business Leadership Building earned its new Gold designation from the U.S. Green Building Council, which awards LEED certification to facilities designed with green materials and practices. The building, which opened in fall 2011, also features environmentally friendly components such as recycling stations, water-efficient plumbing, electricity generated in part by wind power and a sustainable water management and irrigation system.
