A big congratulations goes out to the University of Dayton for receiving their first LEED certified project through the U.S. Green Building Council. The University of Dayton and GE Aviation teamed together to build the GE Aviation Electrical Power Integrated Systems Center also known as EPISCenter. The project received LEED gold certification from the Council. The $53 million EPISCenter Project provides high tech facilities to allow commercial and government researchers to test electrical power systems in airplanes. The 138,000-square-foot facility employs 70 research personnel. That employment figure could grow to 200 research employees within five years.
The Kleingers Group provided civil engineering, surveying, landscape architecture and zoning entitlement services on the project. Our contribution to the LEED design included high efficiency parking stall layouts and the design of sustainable rain garden infrastructure throughout the site. We would like to thank our fellow team members on a successful project: Hastings & Chivetta Architects, the University of Dayton, Heapy Engineering, Shell & Meyer, and CityWide Development.
