The Miami Culinary Institute (MCI) at Wolfson Campus was recognized in the Most Outstanding LEED New Construction Project (Education) category.

As a testament to its persistent focus on sustainability practices, Miami Dade College was recognized by the U.S. Green Building Council’s South Florida Chapter for its commitment to building a greener, more sustainable future.

Two impressive MDC facilities were chosen by a national panel as finalists in the 2014 Gala Verde LEEDership and Green Awards, which honor inspirational businesses, individuals and chapter members for creating outstanding projects to build a more sustainable South Florida community.

The Miami Culinary Institute (MCI) at Wolfson Campus was recognized in the Most Outstanding LEED New Construction Project (Education) category, while the Environmental Center Visitors Pavilion at Kendall Campus was nominated in the Most Outstanding LEED Commercial Interiors Project
category. The eight-story MCI building is an architectural and engineering marvel with exceptional space utilization that generates a limited carbon footprint. The Environmental Center Visitors Pavilion – which boasts solar power, sustainable construction materials and water reclamation in addition to its sleek, efficient design – is one of the few school facilities in Florida to have earned Platinum certification.
