It seems like we have construction going on all the time on our campus, and we do! We are consistently upgrading and improving our facilities for our students, staff, and faculty. We have several new buildings that recently opened, including one that was a major remodel under construction that all incorporate elements of green building. In fact, the remodel of Meadowdale Hall was our first certified LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) building at the silver level.
We also have some instructional departments that are integrating green building concepts and energy efficiency into classes and programs and are working on some very interesting projects: Construction Industry Training, Construction Management, and Energy Management.
Brier Hall Renovation, Triton Student Center Addition
The Triton Student Center opened in winter 2009. This building was constructed on existing grayfield (pavement), keeping more of the soil, trees, and plants intact on campus, and includes natural daylight as well as low-emitting materials for healthy indoor air. For more information, see the Sustainability Case Study documented by the architect, the DLR Group.
Meadowdale Hall Renovation - LEED Silver Certification
Meadowdale Hall underwent a major renovation and opened to the campus in spring 2010. This building features a high performance envelope design while reusing more than 75 percent of existing walls, floors, and roofs. For more information, see the Sustainability Case Study documented by the architect, the DLR Group, and the latest version of the LEED Checklist.
Mukilteo Hall opened in winter 2008 and was our first project created through the lens of green building. The building features lots of natural dayligh, a "cool roof," and use of local, regional, and recycled materials. For more information, see the Sustainability Case Study documented by the architect, the DLR Group.
