Brower Center Tours

Request a tour of the David Brower Center to get an in-depth look at Berkeley’s premiere destination for sustainability. Each 30-60 minute tour includes a review of the building's state-of-the-art green features and an overview of the many well-known environmental and social justice organizations that call the Brower Center home

Green from the ground up, the Brower Center is a powerful model of sustainable, mixed-use development. 
This tour will give you a look into energy-saving and innovative technologies, including the collection and reuse of rainwater for irrigation and toilet flushing, the extensive use of recycled building materials, and the use of vertical post-tensioned structures to minimize potential damage due to earthquakes. Find out how the Brower Center earned a LEED Platinum rating, the highest possible rating from the US Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program.

Depending on Brower Center staff availability, you can book a custom, private tour for your group of 4 to 50 people. Youth and adults are welcome.
