On track to be the first fully certified Living Building Challenge (LBC) in Iowa and only the second existing building project in the world, the Stanley Center is a redevelopment project converting a former public library into the new headquarters. In partnership with Neumann Monson Architects, this project transforms a 11,000-sf vacant downtown building into one of the most high-performance and sustainable buildings in the state. Construction is under way with an expected completion in December 2022.
The facility will provide 110 percent of the headquarters’ energy needs through on-site solar energy production.
Additional project innovations include:
ECT is also a Just 2.0 label holder, a social equity benchmarking platform managed by the International Living Future Institute, the same organization that developed the LBC designation.
