- David Turpin (formerly Social Sciences and Math) (2008)
- Engineering and Computer Science (2006)

Since the District Energy Plant (operational as of 2019) is LEED Gold certification pending, the gross floor area of the building (7616.6 square feet) was not included in the “newly constructed or renovated building space”. This is in line with the STARS technical manual, and the building floor area will be included for this credit within the next STARS submission once the LEED Gold certification is no longer pending and received.
