The Cathedral Church of St. Stephen
Harrisburg, PA

-
First LEED Certified "Green" church in the United States (Silver Rating)

- The project scope for the 21,592 sq ft historic complex of five church buildings included the conversion of a four-story garage to classroom space, the installation of an aluminum and glass entrance to interconnect the sanctuary to adjacent buildings, and remodeling of the existing classrooms and offices.

- The LEED Certification process was developed by the US Green Building Council as a means to establish benchmarks to identify buildings which subscribe to sustainable building and design practices. These principles include energy modelling, indoor air quality and recycling and storm water management. LEED employs a scoring process, where points are earned for compliance to sustainable standards.
