The building received 43 points, which is four points over the LEED Gold rating. The building project managers were Kathryn McNally and Doug Derber.

LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, the nationally accepted benchmarks for the design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings.

“Congratulations to all,” says Lilly Marks, executive vice chancellor for the Anschutz Medical Campus. “As a side note, while not directly on the campus, the new UPI (University Physicians, Inc.) building received a LEED Gold rating last year shortly after it opened. Together, these buildings set a wonderful new standard for construction on our campus.”
