MnSCU B3 Energy Benchmarking:
For this benchmarking project, LHB is working with The Weidt Group to review the energy and water usage of MnSCU’s 54 campuses including Minnesota State University, Mankato. The team is working to educate facility and accounting staff on all campuses on the data collection process. The result will be a comparison between anticipated performance and actual energy use.
LEED & B3 Integration into MnSCU Standards:
It is a goal of MnSCU to have all projects meet the Minnesota Sustainable Building Design Guidelines. LHB and Stanley Consultants worked together to incorporate sustainable design elements of the LEED Rating System and the B3 Guidelines into MnSCU’s Design and Construction Standards.
