At the cutting edge of environmental design and sustainability in construction, LEED has brought what was once dismissed as “hippy dippy” to the mainstream – so much so, that the U.S. Government placed requirements on federal buildings to become LEED Certified. In light of this movement, Labconco sought accreditation for two of its Product Managers to become LEED Green Associates in 2010.

Labconco’s Green mission is still going strong. We’re happy to announce the accreditation of our newest LEED Green Associate, Beth Mettlach. Beth Joined Labconco in 2013 as our resident fume hood expert. She communicates with architects and engineers, designing laboratory spaces for various areas of study.

Laboratories are often environmentally unfriendly for a number of reasons. Beth will use her new LEED knowledge to endow lab equipment users and architects with the power to utilize low flow, high performance fume hoods in combination with Labconco’s forthcoming filtered fume hood to create the next generation of safe and sustainable chemistry labs.
