JJC’s New LEED Greenhouse Complete

Completed in December 2009, Joliet Junior College’s new greenhouse facility is the first project to be built as part of the college’s master plan.

It features a multi-purpose classroom and three greenhouses totaling nearly 9,000 square feet.

The LEED-certified building also features a rainwater harvesting system, passive ventilation system that reduces energy consumption, and an energy reflective roof surface to reflect solar energy and reduce cooling loads.

The college will hold a grand opening for the building on April 13. The community is invited to attend. More information will be sent out as it becomes available.
