The University of Kentucky just approved construction of the second LEED-certified building on the Lexington campus. LEED means Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. The certification is designed to promote sustainable building and development. University of Louisville apparently has two such buildings completed and is working on more.
Guess what UK is going to name its new building? If you guessed "Wildcat Coal Lodge," then award yourself 10 bonus points for today.
The Board vote was 16-3. The negative votes came from faculty, staff, and student representatives -- the people who mostly work on campus.
The new construction project is a $7 million building designed to house the UK basketball program, which is a fairly high profile institution in this state.
