The Campus Crossroads project, the largest building initiative in the history of Notre Dame, has earned LEED Gold Certification from the United States Green Building Council.
In order for a building to achieve LEED Gold certification, it must earn between 60 and 79 points across a variety of design and construction categories that judge the project on its site sustainability, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources used, indoor environmental quality, innovation in design, and regional priority categories.
The project transformed Notre Dame Stadium and the area surrounding it into a year-round hub for academic and student life. The construction of three new buildings added more than 800,000 SF of classrooms, research labs, performance areas, and meeting and event space. The project also included significant upgrades to Notre Dame Stadium, including new locker rooms for the Fighting Irish and visiting team, upgraded concession stands and restrooms, a new video board, wider seating, and the addition of video monitors throughout the concourse.
