Health Sciences Complex

The Health Sciences Complex was completed in 2011. The building is certified LEED gold. Green features of the building include:

  • vegetated roofs, that help mitigate the 'urban heat island' effect
  • low-emitting building materials, which improve indoor air quality
  • most construction waste was diverted from the landfill
  • the building includes recycled, regional and durable building materials
  • rainwater from the building is directed to a large underground cistern — the collected water is used for flushing toilets and for irrigation, thereby reducing the need to use city water
