Project Overview

The Green Building Committee believes that targeting LEED Certification for all new construction is a huge step in the right direction, but there is a substantial amount of existing buildings on campus that are underperforming and need our attention.  An audit is being planned for the North Residential Area using the USGBC’s LEED Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance (EBOM) rating system.  These buildings were completed in 2006 and used a ‘green’ approach in the design and construction, but was not LEED-NC Certified.  Using the North Residential Area as the pilot, the Green Building Committee will determine whether the LEED: EBOM rating system is a strong enough tool for evaluating existing campus buildings.
