The University of Missouri recognizes the value of sustainable capital project development in order to meet today's needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. It is the policy of the University of Missouri to incorporate sustainability principles and concepts in the design of all facilities and infrastructure projects to the fullest extent possible, while being consistent with budget constraints, appropriate life cycle cost analysis and customer priorities. This policy applies to renovation and new construction regardless of funding source or amount; to projects accomplished both in-house and through A/E contracts; and to designs associated with all construction methods. Environmental concepts that guide sustainably designed projects are:
Sustainable Sites: Meet or exceed State of Missouri DNR best management practices for erosion and sedimentation control standards. Accommodate alternative transportation methods.
Water Efficiency: Target water efficient landscaping, reduced water usage, and innovative stormwater management.
Energy and Atmosphere: Encourage optimal energy performance, including appropriate levels of commissioning.
Materials and Resources: Support construction waste management programs. Provide space for building-based recycling program. Encourage use of local and regionally-produced materials and building products made with recycled content.
Indoor Environmental Quality: Pursue toxin-free indoor air through appropriate ventilation and use of building materials that emit low levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
