The Bishop Building on the Saint Francis South campus, honoured by AGC of Oklahoma with a 2010 Build Oklahoma Award, has been cited as the first registered LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold Certified project in Oklahoma.
The LEED Gold Certification was awarded by the U.S. Green Building Council in September. Gold is the second highest level. It is the first gold-certified health-care facility in Tulsa; there are only two in the state and a handful in the United States.
The Bishop Building is a five-story, 110,000-square-foot medical office building and a multilevel parking structure. The building includes an enclosed bridge connector between the hospital and the building.
Rainwater is filtered, stored and then used for irrigation of the native landscape plants.
