Facility Initiatives

U-M Soccer Stadium

Schembechler Hall

Energy Efficiency Measures

• Design building to meet energy efficiency and performance required by ASHRAE/IESNA 90.1-2004
• Occupancy sensors control lighting
• Automatic controls for exterior lighting
• High efficiency hot water heaters
• Boilers are on a reset schedule with respect to outside air temperature to increase their efficiency
• Roof top units are on an occupancy schedule allowing temperature setting to be dialed back when building is not occupied
• Thermostats are provided in each room to allow individual controls
• Automatic sensors control water flow at lavatories
• Tempered water is provided to lavatories to minimize use of hot water

Other Sustainability Features at the Soccer Stadium

• Design site sediment and erosion control to best management practices
• Project is located within 1/4 mile of two bus lines
• Bicycle racks and showers are provided for building occupants
• No new parking is provided
• Limit site disturbance to 40' beyond the building perimeter and 5' beyond roadway curbs
• Provide vegetated open space adjacent to the building that is at minimum equal to the building footprint
• Post-development storm water peak discharge rate and quantity does not exceed the pre-development figures for the one- and two-year 24-hour design storms
• Storm water management promotes infiltration and captures and treats the storm water runoff from 90% of the average annual rainfall using acceptable
• Maximize water efficiency within buildings to reduce the burden on municipal water supply and wastewater systems by using low flow plumbing fixtures and waterless urinals
• Use building products that incorporate recycled content materials, thereby reducing impacts resulting from extraction and processing of virgin materials, e.g. structural steel, carpet, athletic flooring
• Use building materials that have been extracted and/or harvested as well as manufactured, within 500 miles of the project site, e.g. brick, structural steel
• Use wood-based materials and products, which are certified in accordance with the Forest Stewardship Council's (FSC) Principles and Criteria
• Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Management Plan for the construction and pre-occupancy phases of the building to reduce IAQ problems resulting from the construction/renovation process
