First healthcare facility in Minneapolis to achieve Silver LEED-NC certification
Whittier Clinic, one of Hennepin County Medical Center’s (HCMC) five neighborhood primary care clinics, has been awarded LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification at the Silver level by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). The multi-specialty clinic opened in October 2010. McGough Construction was the general contractor and HGA was the architect for the 59,200-square-foot building located on Nicollet Ave. and 28th St. in South Minneapolis.
LEED certification is difficult for healthcare facilities to achieve because of their specific design needs, including stringent building code and infection control requirements. The Whittier Clinic is the first healthcare facility in Minneapolis to be awarded certification under LEED-NC (or LEED for New Construction) at any level.
