The University of Iowa’s new College of Pharmacy building has earned LEED Silver certification. Complete in December 2019, the building was officially dedicated in 2021 due to COVID-19.
The new 210,000-square-foot building replaced the 1960s College of Pharmacy building with research spaces and an abundance of active learning and flexible classrooms and small group collaboration areas.
Since 2008, the University of Iowa has incorporated sustainability into its campus development and has made sustainability a priority in its 2022-2027 strategic plan. This is the 20th building on campus to achieve LEED certification, totaling 2.4 million gross square feet.
