Going for the Gold! We did. And we got it!
A critical component of the expansion plans for Stepping Stones                 Stepping Stones garnered LEED Gold certification
was to grow greener, particularly with the museum’s focus on                    because of the solar panels, “green” roof, wind turbine,
conservation and energy-themed education and learning. The new                  use of recycled materials throughout the building and
facility was designed and built to LEED Gold certification standards,           our focus on related educational stewardship.
celebrating the use of natural, renewable energy sources, recycled/
green building materials and with great attention to the
environmental quality of the building both inside and out.

In February 2011 Stepping Stones received official notice of the
LEED Gold certification from the United States Green Building
Council. An internationally recognized green building certification
system, LEED (which stands for leadership in energy and
environmental design) states that a building meets all performance
metrics including energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions
reduction, improved indoor environmental quality and stewardship
of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.

Stepping Stones is one of three public buildings in Connecticut
to reach this milestone and has received LEED certificate and plaque
to be displayed at the museum.
