365 Raider Way, Bolingbrook Map
Wight & Company
When it opened in 2004, the new Bolingbrook High School became the first LEED certified high school in Illinois, and only the third in the entire country. The 568,000 square foot facility, designed to accommodate 3,600 students, was completed on an expedited schedule though a unique design-build process, with Wight & Company serving as the architect, civil engineer, and general contractor. This facility is just one example of the large and growing movement to build and certify green schools. In many cases, the buildings themselves become part of the curriculum, reflecting the importance of education in the green building movement.
