More than sixty people gathered in the lobby of Pondside III, Keene State’s newest residence hall, for a dedication ceremony on Monday, October 13. The residence hall has received LEED® Silver Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).

Dr. Jay Kahn, vice president for Finance and Planning, introduced members of the design team, including Lavallee-Brensinger, Newman Architects, RFS Engineering, and VHB Civil Engineering. Representatives from the construction manager, MacMillin Corporation, led tours to showcase student suites and sustainable design features. Other contractors present were Hamblett Electric and Stromgren Plumbing and Heating.

Al Rydant, Mary Jensen, and Student Body President Dan Saucier described the living-learning communities and their success in Pondside III. Mayor Dale Pregent presented a proclamation from the city of Keene recognizing the example the College has set with the first LEED-certified building in the City, and USNH Trustees Chairman Ed Dupont congratulated the College on completing yet another award-winning building.
