Campus Sustainability Tours

TourWestern University is committed to the highest standard of green infrastructure. Western will achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification or greater for all major renovations and new building projects on-campus. Campus Green Tours are a great way to get an in-depth look at what makes these buildings sustainable.

Volunteers provide one-hour tours that will make stops at three of Western's top performing buildings. Each guided walk-through will specifically focus on green features implemented in these projects, such as, water and energy efficiency measures, environmentally preferable building materials and construction methods, and measures to maximize indoor air quality performance.

Sign-up for a tour of recently completed campus builings and renovations including McIntosh Gallery, Stevenson-Lawson Building, and the Claudette MacKay-Lassonde Pavilion (Western's first certified building).

Along the way, your host will highlight various building features including a rain water cistern, LED lighting and FSC certified wood products. We also welcome engaging discussions of sustainability and environmental initiatives during the tours. 

Please sign up well in advance as spaces are limited. A confirmation email will be sent shortly thereafter with tour details (maps, parking, etc). Please include in your email:
