Overview

Phase II of the Academic Village project added three five-story, dormitory buildings and 665 beds to the campus. A separate housing command center provides mail collection and centralized operation for the village housing. Unusable space around a retaining pond became waterfront spaces for students and includes outdoor seating complete with power and wireless access.

Features

Energy efficiency was a key goal in designing the buildings, with the target of achieving an energy reduction of 30% compared to the baseline building prescribed by ASHRAE 90.1-2007. Energy-saving components include a geothermal water source heat pump system, variable-air-volume water source heat pumps and air-to-air heat exchanges.
