Stepping Stones Museum for Children and Beinfield Architecture Receive GOLD LEED Certification

Congratulations to the entire Project Team!  Stepping Stones Museum for Children has earned the coveted ranking of LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council! 

The Museum says they "garnered LEED Gold certification because of the solar panels, "green" roof, wind turbine, use of recycled materials throughout the building and [their] focus on related educational stewardship."  The design and program also include energy efficient lighting, storm water management, and a food court offering locally grown, organic produce.

Stepping Stones is now one of only 3 public buildings in the State of Connecticut to achieve the LEED Gold certification.  In case you didn't already know, LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.

Beinfield Architecture is incredibly proud to be part of this groundbreaking project.
