Back in August, we reported about the computer science building at FAU receiving LEED Platinum certification. We’re back again to tell you that FAU’s admirable green efforts have continued, with the LEED Platinum certification of the university’s Faculty & Staff Club, as well as their Dining Hall.
The U.S. Green Building Council awarded the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum certification to Florida Atlantic University’s Faculty and Staff Club and Dining Hall, located in the College of Engineering and Computer Science building. The building houses the University Faculty & Staff Club, the Atrium and Atrium Patio, and The DiVinci Room. The first Platinum-Level LEED Certified Commercial Interior project in Florida and 10th Platinum certified project in the state, the space was designed by Emilio Lebolo III, vice president of Gallo Herbert Lebolo and constructed by James A. Cummings, Inc.
FAU’s newest green building was certified based on several green design and construction features:
- Site selection
- Water efficiency
- Energy & atmosphere
- Materials & resources
- Indoor environment
- Innovation & design
In addition to these, the building also positively impacted not only the project itself, but the surrounding community as well. Other FAU LEED certified buildings include the Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing, Davie West and Pine Jog Environmental Education Center.
