USGBC LEED Silver Certified
The Engineering Building is three stories, with the first two floors finished out for current engineering programs and the third floor shelled out for future engineering programs and faculty. It contains classrooms, faculty offices, lecture halls, student collaboration spaces and laboratories for mechanical, petroleum and aerospace engineering programs. The building is a protected steel frame and concrete structure, slab on grade, with exterior features of limestone, glass and metal panels which is consistent with other structures on both campuses. The project includes a new parking lot for approximately 140 student and faculty vehicles. The project was the University’s first LEED project, with features including solar voltaic cells, irrigation using pond water and turf pavers for fire department access.
