RAMSA's Gatton College of Business and Economics Certified LEED Gold

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) has announced that Robert A.M. Stern Architects' Gatton College of Business and Economics at the University of Kentucky has achieved LEED Gold Certification.

Extending the usefulness of existing structures is inherently sustainable. Rather than tearing the existing buildings down and starting anew, our design unites a 1963 building and 1992 wing with a new 65,000-square-foot classroom and events addition, all organized around a new 7,000-square-foot atrium, to create a state-of-the-art 226,000-square-foot center for business education in the University's historic core. RAMSA believes that sustainability is not a style and that best practices must be integrated into the design process from the start.

RAMSA Partners Robert A.M. Stern, Graham S. Wyatt, and Kevin M. Smith led the design effort. Ross Tarrant Architects served as associate architect. For more information, click here.
