Design Highlights for Buildings that are currently being certified as LEED Buildings but not yet certified:
- Perry Hall Renovation Highlights (Currently in Construction Phase):
- Building Reuse: The project reuses significant portion of an existing building, retaining much of the shell and core of the building providing significant savings in building lifecycle carbon.
- Envelope Upgrades: The renovation provides a major envelope upgrade, including insulating existing exterior walls, replacing all existing single pane windows with thermally broken-triple glazed window assemblies, and incorporates a new white roof to reduce heat island effect on the campus by reflecting summer sunlight instead of absorbing heat.
- Site Improvements: The project is a key part in re-imagining the north campus landscape, providing a new entry located along student circulation paths to encourage healthy walking lifestyles. The project also incorporates low-maintenance, drought resistant landscaping which does not require irrigation.
- Water Use Reduction: The project utilizes low-flow plumbing fixtures for its needs, resulting in a 38% reduction in potable water use.
- Materials: Finishes and materials for the project were selected with a focus on providing materials with a low environmental impact, including:
- 10% of all materials used on the project are sourced from recycled materials
- 10% of the project materials are anticipated to have been manufactured and extracted from within 500 miles of the site.
- More than 50% of the wood used on the project will be sourced from Sustainably Managed Forests.
- Low-emitting paints, sealants, adhesives and flooring specified throughout the building
- No added urea formaldehyde used in composite wood products.
- Healthy Environment: A majority of the regularly occupied spaces have been designed with access to daylighting and views. The building also allows for high levels of lighting control for building occupants to adjust their personal environment, and Carbon Dioxide sensors to optimize amount of outside air provided in the building. Building maintenance will incorporate a green cleaning program to maintain clean Indoor Air Quality.
- Energy Efficient Design: The project incorporates a variety of energy saving and efficient strategies for building systems, including the following:
- Energy recovery systems on building exhaust and economizers included on air handling systems to take advantage of free-heating from exhaust and lower overall energy use.
- HVAC and Lighting Systems result in an energy savings of 15% and a 26% reduction in Greenhouse gas emissions
- The project utilizes high efficiency, low-flow fume hoods for research needs, to better manage energy used by exhaust systems.
- LED lighting is used throughout the building contributing to energy savings and less mercury use in the building.
- Refrigerants used in building systems specified with low-global warming and ozone depletion potentials.
- Construction Waste Management: The construction of the project is executed in a way that minimizes the project’s impact on the site – managing runoff and waste infiltration in the area. Through careful monitoring of construction waste, 75% of all waste from the project will be recycled and diverted from landfills.
- Coburn Hall Renovation Highlights (Note: Construction starting and design is wrapping up so all details are not finalized):
- Target LEED v4 Silver Certification
- High thermal performance for the envelope of the addition
- Adding the building on our Building Automation System and will include zoning with off-hour modes
- Energy efficient LED lighting
- Occupancy Sensors
- Low-flow plumbing
- Maintain good air quality through low-VOC materials
- Divert Construction and Demolition waste from landfills
- Bourgeois (124,928 SF include Leitch)(designed to meet LEED silver)
- 77% certified wood by Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), low VOC paints, energy efficient lighting w/ occupancy sensors, low flow fixtures, high performance glazing and building envelope, condensing boilers, heat recovery and valance units.
- Leitch (124,928 SF includes Bourgeois) (designed to meet LEED silver)
- FCS wood, low VOC paints, energy efficient lighting w/occupancy sensors, reuse of existing buildings, low flow fixtures, new flooring with high recycled content.
- Fox Dining Hall (17,000 SF) (designed to meet LEED silver)
- low flow toilets and faucets, LED lighting, high efficiency kitchen equipment, low VOC materials, FSC certified wood table tops, recycled content in carpet, sustainable casework, a pulper to convert food/paper waste to compost.
