The University of California will seek to certify as many buildings as possible through the LEED-O+M rating system and implement a Green Lab Program.
School of Medicine Research Building
The School of Medicine Research Building was the first campus building to receive LEED Gold. This 60,000 square foot building accommodates various research facilities.
