Pittsburgh’s Frick Environmental Center is a Model of Sustainable Design

Pittsburgh’s Frick Environmental Center is a municipal building that has received full Living Building Challenge (LBC) credentialing and certification from the International Living Future Institute. This green/sustainable certification is among the world’s most rigorous and comprehensive—only 21 buildings worldwide have received it. Frick’s many green attributes include sustainably harvested wood cladding, geothermal heating and cooling, natural ventilation, solar energy, and rainwater collection and distribution. The reclaimed grey water reduces Frick’s environmental footprint in a variety of ways, including sewer, irrigation, and wetland landscaping. Read more at Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy.
