- Light Emitting Diode (LED) type lights will
be installed throughout the garage along with a
daylight harvesting control system, which shuts
off lights in areas of the garage when a sensor
detects enough natural sunlight to adequately
illuminate the interior. Combined, these
measures will reduce lighting energy by 60
percent over more traditional lighting systems.
- By using pervious paving materials and
replacing some formerly paved sections with
grass, SU has increased the site’s perviousness
by 15 percent, decreasing storm water runoff.
- The garage is being constructed in a
pre-developed area, limiting sprawl.
The garage’s roof will be made from white
concrete, allowing light to reflect instead of
being absorbed, reducing heat island effect.
- 100 percent of the waste concrete created
during construction will be recycled.
100 percent of all concrete (over 1,085 tons)
and metal (over 62 tons) from pre-existing
buildings demolished to make way for the parking
garage has been recycled.
- At least 60 percent of all materials used to
construct the garage have been purchased
locally, requiring less fuel and fewer emissions
- Plans for the garage include a new campus
telecommunications hub, eliminating the
requirement for construction of a similar hub in
a less developed area.
- SU is investigating reserving up to 5
percent of the garage’s capacity - roughly 40
parking spaces - for low-emitting and
fuel-efficient vehicles (hybrids) and/or carpool
