About the EECLEED emblem Opens in new window

Built in 2010, the Environmental Education Center is one of the City of Plano’s first green buildings and is certified by the U.S. Green Building Council as LEED Platinum (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). The design incorporates many sustainable features.

  • Coordination of architectural site orientation and layout design for maximum energy efficiency (roof overhangs, east-west orientation, shade)
  • Use of recycled, renewable and non-toxic materials (low VOC paint and adhesives, reclaimed wood, compressed recycled paper counters, recycled glass terrazzo flooring and fly-ash concrete)
  • Integration of energy efficient and renewable energy technologies (solar panels, natural lighting, photovoltaics, wind turbine and living green roof)
  • Applications of water conservation techniques (rainwater harvesting, gray-water recycling, low-flow water system, drip irrigation)
  • Incorporation of educational tools (interpretive displays, interactive programs, workshops and public presentations)
