LEED Program History at UF

Green building movement started at UF in 1990. Green initiatives were underway with a grassroots movement of students and faculties at School of Building Construction at the College of Design Construction & Planning with building the first LEED Gold Certified building in the state of Florida under LEED v 1.0 pilot to house School of Building Construction and under the project management of University Facilities Planning & Construction Division.

UF Facilities Planning & Construction is the first in the state of Florida to require a LEED accredited professional on staff to ensure LEED criteria incorporated in design and construction on all University major and minor projects. Our LEED accredited professional works with the project design teams to obtain the highest level of LEED certification for all projects.
