Sun Devil fitness complex achieves LEED platinum certification
The new fitness complex at Arizona State University has received the highest level of LEED certification, according to a press release.
The U.S. Green Building Council has awarded the Tempe Sun Devil Fitness Complex platinum certification, which demonstrates the commitment to environmental standards of excellence.
Designed by Studio Ma/Sasaki and built by Gilbane Building Co., the new recreation complex has many sustainability elements incorporated into the facility, such as:
- 93.3 percent of onsite generated construction waste was diverted from landfills.
- 21.29 percent of the total building materials value includes materials and products manufactured and extracted within 500 miles of the project.
- 28 of 35 Energy and Atmosphere credits were awarded. Because of this energy conscious design the building realizes an energy cost savings of 63.63% and through renewable energy generated on-site, 20.62 percent of the total energy costs is offset.
