Used for student, faculty and staff offices, the complete renovation of this building added a large skylight that provides an opportunity for daylight dimming, as well as an ideal mounting surface for photovoltaic solar collectors. Over 10% of the building's electricity and 81 computers are powered by 112 solar PV panels, which reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 31,600 pounds annually. Energy recovery ventilators with fan-powered boxes improve energy efficiency.
