Total floor area of newly constructed or renovated building space (include projects completed within the previous five years) :
41767 Square Feet

Floor area of newly constructed or renovated building space certified Living under the Living Building Challenge:
0 Square Feet

Floor area of newly constructed or renovated building space certified at each level under a rating system for design and construction used by an Established Green Building Council (GBC) :
Certified Floor Area
LEED BD+C Platinum or at the highest achievable level under another rating system 0 Square Feet
LEED BD+C Gold or at the 2nd highest level under another 4- or 5-tier GBC rating system 0 Square Feet
Certified at mid-level under a 3- or 5-tier GBC rating system for design and construction (e.g. BREEAM, CASBEE, DGNB, Green Star) 0 Square Feet
LEED BD+C Silver or at a step above minimum level under another 4- or 5-tier GBC rating system 32650 Square Feet
LEED BD+C Certified or certified at minimum level under another GBC rating system 0 Square Feet

A brief description of the green building rating system(s) used and/or a list of certified buildings and ratings:

The square footage listed above of 32650.0 is from the Donna E. and Delbert J. McLaughlin University Center built in 2012 and certified as LEED Silver in 2012 or 2013.
Building debris and waste materials were recycled during construction. Also, low VOC paint and carpet are used throughout as well as occupancy sensors. Across from the Hub office is a reusable water bottle fountain, which reduces the amount of water bottles thrown away. Inside the dining hall, you won't find trays, but only plates, bowls, and silverware. This reduces the use of excess plastics and water to clean the extra dishes.
