    Sangren Hall, Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan by SHW Group.

Western Michigan University’s new Sangren Hall has literally and figuratively transformed WMU’s campus core. The new Sangren Hall replaces the original Sangren Hall, which was completed in 1964. With 30 percent more seats than the former facility, the new building is expected to carry on the original Sangren Hall’s legacy as one of the university’s most heavily utilized classroom buildings. Designed to achieve LEED Gold Certification, Sangren Hall is expected to save $345,000 annually on energy costs over the old Sangren Hall. Furthermore, compared to the ASHRAE standard building, Sangren Hall uses 30 to 35 percent less energy and 50 percent less water.
