The National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II) has been awarded a LEED gold rating. The NSLS-II is a user research facility at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory that offers scientists infrared, ultraviolet, and x-ray light that can be used to “examine materials and processes at a scale that is not possible at other types of research labs or facilities”. The building is Brookhaven’s newest and is a ring that spans a half-mile in diameter. The complex was designed by HDR architecture, Inc. based out of Alexandria, Virginia who examined how to incorporate the LEED principles and requirements into its design.
