The University of North Texas is a Higher Education winner of the 2012 Green School Awards by the U.S. Green Building Council Central Texas – Balcones Chapter.

The Green School Awards recognize sustainable design that promotes public awareness with the idea that every school can present the opportunity for each student to develop a love for learning through energy efficient buildings, higher test scores and low absenteeism, according to the website. U.S. Green Building Council Central Texas – Balcones Chapter is a nonprofit organization committed to accelerating growth in sustainable building and land development practices in Central and South Texas through innovation, education, advocacy and partnerships, according to their mission.

Winners of this award had to submit a PowerPoint presentation exhibiting characteristics of green school designs in either public, private, K-12 or higher education schools; submit a description of the project; site plan and images.

UNT’s Life Science Complex will be honored as the Higher Education winner of the 2012 Green School Awards Oct. 11 in Austin at the 2012 Green School Symposium; Perkins+Will Architects will also present the project case study at the symposium.
