A rainwater harvesting system, a green roof, low flow plumbing and other eco-focused features has landed Cooley Law School in Auburn Hills on the list of the most impressive law school buildings in the world.
Best Choice Schools’ independent ranking put Cooley, which has undergone major renovation and a 64,000-square-foot addition, at #35 out of 50 law schools. Architects and engineers from Rockford Construction and SHW Group designed the building.
Cooley’s building on its Auburn Hills campus at 2630 Featherstone Road is a LEED silver certified facility that was constructed with sustainability at the fore. “Building architects sought to maximize light and air flow throughout the structure with large windows and open spaces,” according to Best Choice Schools.
Cooley is the fourth law school in the U.S. to be LEED certified.
