Omega Institute is celebrating the Grand Opening of the much anticipated Omega Center for Sustainable Living (OCSL), an award-winning green building designed by Kansas City-based BNIM Architects, renowned for sustainable design.
The OCSL is a state-of-the art water reclamation facility and environmental education center that brings together wastewater recycling, clean energy, green architecture, and other sustainability elements that can be replicated locally and globally. The OCSL will provide sustainability education for students of all ages, including professionals, policy makers, developers, and the 23,000 visitors who come to Omega every year.
"The opening of the Omega Center for Sustainable Living is historic both for our campus and for our country," said Skip Backus, chief executive officer at Omega. "The OCSL demonstrates the critical intersection of environmental sustainability, renewable energy, and the new green economy. We are very proud to be at the forefront of this movement."
