I2SL's Great Lakes Chapter serves as resource to the greater Great Lakes Region to further the Institute's goals and promote the design, construction, and operation of resource-effective and environmentally responsible facilities dedicated to education, medicine, and research. 

Our aim is to foster sustainable design, engineering, and operational practices through a network of industry professionals drawing upon individual and corporate expertise and real world experience. The Great Lakes Chapter provides advocacy and education while fostering professional interaction on industry best practices and emerging technologies that promote sustainability of laboratory and other high tech facilities.
