Oglebay WVU LEED® Certified

Oglebay Hall West Virginia University
  • High performance window glazing system for beneficial daylight will reduce thermal losses and solar heat gain. Lighting systems adjust to daylight levels and automatically dim and shut off, saving energy.
  • HVAC systems provide exceptional indoor air quality and energy efficient performance.

West Virginia University transformed its historic 54,000 sq. ft. Oglebay Hall into a state-of-the-art forensics laboratory and classroom building. Dating from 1916, the new 74,000 sq. ft. building includes DNA and molecular biology laboratories, electron microscopy, bone analysis, blood, fingerprint, and trace evidence analysis facilities. The project has been designed for and achieved LEED® certification.
