The U.S. Green Building Council has awarded LEED Platinum certification to the Sultana Education Foundation’s new center in Chestertown, Maryland. Emory Hill & Company constructed the center, making it the second project by the Delaware firm to receive LEED Platinum status.
Emory Hill has built more than ten LEED certified projects, including the Delaware Technical Community College “Energy House,” several Royal Farms stores, and the Ferris School Juvenile Multi-Purpose Facility.
The Sultana Foundation center serves as the headquarters for the philanthropic organization’s educational and environmental programs. The building will host special events, lectures, teacher training conferences and focused workshops, such as environmental science learning and boat building.
The world’s largest high-resolution map of the Chesapeake Bay is embedded in the main floor.
