Habitat for Humanity Home Is LEED Platinum

A home completed in Park City, Utah, by Habitat for Humanity of Summit and Wasatch Counties has been awarded LEED Platinum Certification. The US Green Building Council (USGBC) presented the homeowner and Habitat and the homeowner with a plaque certifying the platinum recognition.
 
Students from Salt Lake Community College’s (SLCC) building and construction program volunteered their time and expertise to help Habitat for Humanity build a home loaded with sustainable green features in Park City. The resulting LEED Platinum certification is the highest-level certification for energy efficiency and environmental design that single-family homes can receive.
 
Habitat for Humanity creates safe, healthy, decent, energy efficient and affordable housing to low-income families around the world. Salt Lake Community College’s building and construction program builds one or two homes each year as part of its curriculum. This particular project was unique for a Habitat for Humanity project and the college because the students’ participation in the project was written directly into the college’s curriculum.  
 
Three SLCC faculty members were involved working with students participating in the Habitat for Humanity project both in teaching and building. Three classes that had about 20 students each were involved with the project. College administrators plan on continuing to work with Habitat for Humanity on projects in the future.
