About the Recreation Center

A model of sustainable design, the center incorporates innovative, energy-saving strategies and is expected to become one of the most energy-efficient facilities of its kind in the country.

The expansion of the existing Student Recreation Center was a student-driven project. Energy-saving measures implemented include:

  • Heat recovery loop
  • Solar thermal panels mounted on the roof
  • Highly efficient indirect-direct evaporative cooling
  • Displacement ventilation
  • Low-energy overhead destratification fans
  • LEDs and daylight harvesting controls
