Van Andel Institute Awarded LEED Platinum Certification

MICHIGAN – The Van Andel Institute’s Phase II  building has been awarded LEED Platinum status by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC). A major fixture of Grand Rapid’s “Medical Mile,” the Institute was designed by Viñoly in 1997 as a phased-growth facility, expandable and adaptable to meet the changing needs of its team of elite researchers. Phase II added 240,000 square feet of new laboratory space as well as innovative environmental and service features that bring the building to the forefront of health sciences in the 21st century.
