STOKES HALL AND SUSTAINABILITY
Stokes has been designed and is being constructed as a LEED certified building, in keeping with BC's 'green building' commitment that all new buildings are to be designed and built to a minimum LEED Silver rating. A higher rating will be sought when possible. BC has already constructed four LEED Platinum buildings and one LEED Gold building.
