New LEED Certified Chapels

The new US/Canada meetinghouse standard is being developed with several prototypes being designed and built. These new prototypes will be LEED certified, registering under LEED Version 2.2 before the new Version 3 launches next month. The first of these was registered yesterday with the US Green Building Council and will be located in Eagle Mountain, Utah.

I think this is a super exciting trend to see taking shape. As for your question, eped, I clicked on the Google map and used Street View to get a view of the area. There is already a meetinghouse a stone's throw from the address of the LEED-certified one being developed.

The LDS church makes efforts on style (although you might not guess it with some of the 70s architecture). With that in mind, I assume the new chapel will closely match the style of the older (current) one.

Anyone have any inside information about the style of the new building?
