Project list


This new three-story, 136,000 square foot building houses 10 classrooms, 19 study rooms, and 343 office spaces, including faculty, student advising, and student support services. It also includes services that were housed in the now demolished Colbourn Hall as well as both the Humanities and Social Studies Colleges.


TLC used energy modeling to make sure that the building and its systems were efficient and followed LEED guidelines. The projected percentage of energy-use reduction compared with the ASHRAE 90.1 baseline is 25% and the water-use reduction compared with the ASHRAE 90.1 baseline is 31%. LEED principles were used to increase energy efficiency on plumbing, HVAC equipment, LED lighting and lighting control. Efficient glazing and chilled beam systems were presented to UCF and were selected by them to reach their energy goals.
