Energy Efficiency Measures

• Envelope inspections
• Clerestory glazing
• 18% more efficient thermal barrier than prescribed by ASHRAE 90.1-2007
• Optimized occupancy schedules, HVAC system zoning, and part load HVAC system efficiency
• Improved ventilation efficiencies
• Low air return
• Demand Control Ventilation
• Bi-Polar Ionization which dramatically improves indoor air quality while significantly reducing the requirement for outside air thus reducing the energy associated with mechanically conditioning that air
• Very limited use of incandescent lighting and utilization of LED site lighting

Other Sustainability Features at Schembechler Hall

• Adaptive reuse of existing space
• Passive solar glazing strategies
• Tall interior spaces coupled with clerestory glazing to optimize daylight harvesting
• Only low-VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) materials used on interior spaces
• 20% recycled and regional materials
• 75% diversion rate for construction waste
• Indoor Air Quality plan for all construction activities
