Chapter Meeting – 04/06/2023
Event: Tour of Stanley Center
Location: Stanley Consultants, 225 Iowa Ave., Muscatine, IA 52761

Event Brief: Join the Mississippi Valley Chapter of ASHRAE for a brief presentation about the new Stanley Center at the Stanley Consultants office in Muscatine. The presentation will be followed up with a tour of the new Stanley Center.

The Stanley Center for Peace and Security is investing in the local community through the acquisition and renovation of the former Musser Public Library, which will become the center's permanent new home. The project will support construction and engineering jobs and culminate in one of the most environmentally-friendly and ecologically-sustainable buildings in the world. It will be integrated into the community and include space dedicated to the center's programming in Muscatine.

Once construction is complete, the Stanley Center's new home is anticipated to be one of the greenest buildings in the world. The building aims to become the first such structure in the state of Iowa to be fully certified as a Living Building.

The Living Building Challenge is the world's most rigorous proven-performance standard for buildings. To achieve certification, Living Buildings must generate all of their own energy and be self-sufficient, create a positive impact on the human and natural systems that interact with them, and connect occupants to light, air, food, nature, and community. In short, a Living Building is one that gives more than it takes.
