ARCHITECTURAL RECORDS:Children's Hospital Named First LEED-HC Platinum Building

Salvaged materials, sensory gardens, and non-toxic medical equipment have all helped the recent expansion of Dell Children’s Medical Center earn the first-ever LEED for Healthcare (LEED-HC) Platinum designation.
Measures taken for the $49 million W.H. and Elaine McCarthy South Tower include sourcing 60 percent of the building’s materials from salvaged or reused materials—effectively diverting 3,000 tons of waste from the landfill—and installing efficient appliances to reduce water waste by 38 percent.
