Cunz Hall recently became the first renovated building on campus with wet lab space to become LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) certified. The building's LEED silver certification was made official this past fall by the U.S. Green Building Council.
Originally built in 1969 as the Dieter Cunz Hall of Languages, Cunz underwent renovations and reopened as a state-of-the-art building in fall of 2011. This newly revamped building allowed the College of Public Health to be under one roof for the first time.
"Working on the Cunz Hall project was an eye-opening and invigorating experience," said Renee Watts, facilities manager. "From the first renovation project we did on the 4th floor in 2005, to the finished product in 2011, the transformation of Cunz Hall was an amazing feat. Having the entire college together in one space after many years was an ultimate goal, but being housed in a building that operates efficiently, provides a pleasant environment, and is a gem on campus is enormously satisfying."
