Thanks to Covestro, LLC’s new sponsorship with the Energy Innovation Center (EIC), Pittsburgh will soon have a new, innovative, efficient and beautiful meeting space in the Uptown neighborhood. The 2,150 sq. ft. conference room will be complemented with a 725 sq. ft. adjoining classroom, overlooking the Allegheny River. Many of Covestro’s high-tech materials have been incorporated into the renovation of the former Connelly Trade School into the LEED Platinum certified EIC.
