On Earth Day, April 22, IARC Office, Technical and Education Building Project Manager Rhonda Merchut led Fermilab employees on a building tour. The IARC building is LEED gold-certified, which means that every element of the project was carried out with the environment in mind.
Daylighting, auto-dimming lights and the roof garden helped earn the building LEED status. The use of regional and recycled materials were an important consideration in the project.
