Harris-Stowe State University’s Early Childhood Development/Parent Education Center


View a list of program attendees

Join us at Harris-Stowe State University for a presentation on challenges and successes in the design and construction of the HSSU Early Childhood Development/Parent Education Center, currently seeking LEED Gold certification. During the design of the project the Owner had yet to determine if the project should be LEED certified and at what level.  After several meetings to discuss the pros and cons of certification it was determined to pursue a Silver level when the design was nearly 95% complete.  Behind schedule and over-budget according to the Construction Manager’s estimates, the project team faced major challenges. Learn how these challenges were overcome and how the building is now expecting Gold level certification, while being completed on schedule and nearly a million dollars under budget. After the formal presentation, attendees will have an opportunity to take a self-guided tour through the building with designated stops including classrooms, the pervious paved drive, and rain garden.
