Michigan's Crisler Arena Is Awarded LEED™ Certification

Michigan finding dominance off the court.

Generally, the Michigan basketball program displays its dominance by winning on the court.

But today, it found another way.

The University of Michigan Athletic Department’s Crisler Arena, which recently underwent a huge renovation and expansion, was granted LEED™ (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold Certification from the United States Green Building Council -- the highest honor.

In order to achieve LEED™ status, a building must have a high-performance building envelope, water-efficient measures, efficient lighting, and strong air quality.

The new Crisler boasts a new HD video scoreboard, a whole new lighting system, new seating, heating, ventilation and cooling.

With the certification, Michigan found another way to exude it’s difference than other colleges— The Michigan Difference.
