Morris Autobody School and Welding Shop Addition Achieves LEED©️ Silver

The Morris Autobody School and Welding Shop Addition, designed by Republic Architecture Inc., has been recently certified to the Silver level of the LEED©️ green building program, thanks to a conscious effort in implementing sustainable building technologies and design strategies.

This building was designed to include many sustainable features, including a Solarwall that contributes to the heating and ventilation of the facility, which furthermore contributes to long-term energy consumption and the reduction of operation costs. Overall, the team from Republic Architecture developed solutions to improve and enhance indoor air quality, natural daylighting, energy and water efficiency; and used recycled, local and durable materials as much as possible within the space.
