Hanover Hills Elementary School Achieves LEED Gold Status

February 6th, 2019

In recognition of its energy efficiency and environmental friendliness, Hanover Hills Elementary School has achieved LEED Gold designation by the U.S. Green Building Council. The new school, which opened in August 2018, provides many features designed to conserve electricity, water and materials while reducing negative impacts on human health and the environment.

LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification system and its standards have guided all Howard County Public School System new construction and full systemic renovation projects in recent years. Hanover Hills is the 13th HCPSS school to receive LEED status.
