     LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) – The Bim Kendall House on the University of
Wyoming campus has been transformed from a 1950s prairie-style
office building into a modern, sustainable facility.
     The Kendall House is home to the UW Environment and Natural
Resources Program that houses the Haub School, Ruckelshaus
Institute and Wyoming Conservation Corps.
     The building’s green attributes includes: A passive ventilation
system in lieu of a traditional electrically-powered system;
recycled materials such as carpet tiles made from pop bottles and
the entryway flooring made from used car tires; energy efficient
windows and new insulation in the original building to maximize
energy efficiency.
