Through the use of the Florida Energy Code, USF has implemented standards in building insulation values for walls, roofs, windows, motor and equipment efficiencies, mechanical systems insulation and controls for both HVAC and lighting. Life cycle cost analysis and FLACOM (Florida Commercial Building Energy Computational Program) are required as part of the Building Construction Document process.
Dr. Kiran C. Patel Center for Global Solutions received a Certificate of Occupancy in December 2010. This 75,538 square foot project will be seeking Certification in 2011. Other projects seeking LEED Certification in 2011 include the 4th and 5th build out of Morsani, LEED for Commercial Interiors; Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation (CAMLS), LEED BD +C; Sundome Renovations LEED BC + C; and Interdisciplinary Science Building A(ISA), LEED BD + C.
USF anticipates several buildings to be LEED certified on the Tampa campus, including the Interdisciplinary Science Building (under construction), the Wellness and Nutrition Center (in design), and the Athletics Basketball Arena (in design).
