Green Building LEED compliant
- - -
When existing buildings are renovated, or new ones are constructed, Facilities has led the way in building green by increasing the number of buildings on campus with LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification, the nationally accepted benchmark for design, construction, and operation of high-performance, green buildings. Columbia projects with LEED certification or in the process of certification include:
Columbia is committed to a construction impact mitigation program that incorporates strategies, tools and technologies for reducing diesel emissions. This includes on-site field compliance, air monitoring, and ensuring that construction equipment use air pollution control devices and Ultra-Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD) fuel. Read more about our clean construction efforts in Manhattanville here.
Organized within our Capital Project Management (CPM) group, the Exteriors and Historic Preservation (EHP) team works to improve Columbia's sense of place on campus and in the Morningside Heights neighborhood by repairing and restoring its building fabric.
For EHP, restoration often involves the replacement of damaged and missing building elements and the cleaning of building façades. By restoring or "recycling" existing buildings instead of demolishing and building new ones, EHP helps the University to reduce its carbon footprint and embodied energy-the quantity of energy required to manufacture a product, material or service or to supply it to the point of use.

When did they start building Arlington national cemetery?
Arlington Cemetery was started during the Civil War when the US seized the property of General Lee (Southern General) for failure to pay his back taxes. The house had been part of the George Washington family line. Arlington Cemetery is open to the public and the house is on display and there is a visitor center for the cemetery. The land property was huge. There are still military veterans buried there.
