The Aldo Leopold Legacy Center in Baraboo, Wisconsin, bears witness to the new resource awareness that reigns in the land once famous for its insatiable hunger for energy. The charity building designed and constructed by The Kubala Washatko Architects uses locally generated energy so efficiently that it can be operated as a completely CO2-neutral envelope. The Leopold Legacy Center was awarded a platinum certificate by the American Green Building Council in 2007.
dormakaba's contribution to the project
Also in keeping with the objectives of energy efficiency and sustainability are the durable products from dirnajava installed throughout the building. Through their reliable, safe and sustainable performance, these ensure that all the door functions support the overriding goal of maximum energy utilisation efficiency. Aesthetically the dormakaba closers, stops and holders, and cylindrical locksets complement the naturalist, earthy décor.
