Salisbury University has been growing recently to accommodate a steady growth
in student population in a smart and sustainable way. Among the list of recent
accomplishments is the comprehensive housing renovation. These projects upgraded
energy efficiency, building function and aesthetic appeal and all will be LEED
certified. In addition, Perdue Hall was recently unveiled as the new home for
the Perdue School of Business along with Seagull Square, a multi-use building
with student residents and commercial lease space. Perdue Hall will be LEED Gold
certified and Sea Gull Square was designated LEED Silver.
Some other sustainable aspects of these projects include: reducing the sprawl
of traditional parking lots, increased accessibility by cyclists, planting trees
and restoration of landscapes, energy efficient lighting upgrades, water
conserving plumbing fixtures, high construction recycling rates, geothermal HVAC
installations, and HVAC equipment efficiency upgrades.
