CMU to rename 'green' residence hall
Share with others:
Carnegie Mellon University is renaming a residence hall for H. Guyford Stever, the university's fifth president.
Stever House, formerly New House, was described as the nation's first "green" dormitory when finished in 2003 at a cost of $12.5 million. It was the first dormitory in the nation to be certified as a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design building by the U.S. Green Building Council. It has a "silver" LEED designation, the third-highest level of certification, because of its low environmental impact in both construction and function.
Dr. Stever announced the creation of Carnegie Mellon 41 years ago during the commencement of the Carnegie Institute of Technology, which merged with the Mellon Institute of Research.
