Richmond Home


The University of Richmond is recognized for our commitment to improving the sustainability performance of our buildings. All new buildings constructed on campus are required to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver status or an equivalent rating. LEED requirements influence the design, building, and maintenance of buildings to provide a safe and healthy workspace while minimizing impact on land, air, and water.

In 2004, Weinstein Hall became the first LEED certified building in Central Virginia. There are now 16 LEED certified buildings on campus.

Associate Vice President for Facilities, Andrew McBride, and Director of Design and Construction, Chuck Rogers, have attained the status of LEED Accredited Professional. For more information on campus architecture and design, visit the Facilities website
