FRICK ENVIRONMENTAL CENTER BUILDING DASHBOARD Exploring real-world data from one of the world’s greenest buildings

Frick Environmental Center

A project of the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy and the City of Pittsburgh, the Frick Environmental Center is a certified Living Building that has achieved Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum.

Watch a brief video introduction to the Frick Environmental Center’s sustainability features.

The videos below introduce the FEC and provide deeper explanations of the sustainability features of the environmental center building and campus.

Real-time data on aspects of FEC’s operations are accessible on the FEC Building Dashboard. The links below provide an orientation to the FEC Dashboard and suggested lesson plans created by high school teachers.

Throughout the 2021-2022 school year, we will be hosting additional teacher workshops exploring how to use FEC sustainability dashboard data in high school science classrooms. Stipends and Act 48 credit available. If interested, email jschnakenberg@pittsburghparks.org for more information.
