The Business Instructional Facility was awarded the LEED Platinum Certification on December 2, 2009, having achieved 52 of the 69 possible points on the LEED Scorecard. The building was awarded the LEED certification because of the materials the it is made of; the practices used in construction; the “load” it places on campus power, cooling, water, and sewage infrastructure; the impact it has on the environment; and the functions it serves. Sustainable features of the building include 4,000 square feet of solar panels on the outside of the building and automatic light dimmers that detect ambient light from outside in order to adjust accordingly to reduce power consumption.
