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.
