Description: 

LEED Platinum is in the design for the new Huang Engineering Center at Stanford University. In this ambitious project, Plyboo strand and flat grain amber plywood were used. In addition to applications as stair tread platforms and under sheathing to the stair case, bamboo plywood was used for wall treatments and cabinetry. Formaldehyde-free and FSC were important as contributors to this LEED platinum project.
