SCUP 2015 Mid-Atlantic Symposium:
The Sustainable Campus 2.0
May 18, 2015 | Rutgers University–Livingston Campus | Piscataway, NJ
Sustainability first impacted college and university campuses thanks to U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED ™ program and similar programs focused primarily on the design of individual buildings. Since then, campus planners have begun to develop more holistic approaches to sustainability to address campus-wide concerns such as storm water management and utility infrastructures. Frequently, the sustainable strategies that resulted have come not out of a focus on sustainability, but out of other pressing realities, such as reducing energy costs or accommodating new construction. This one-day conference will focus on the evolution of campus-wide sustainability planning that seeks real world results as it also supports institutional mission in defining sustainability for college and university campuses.
Define the critical relationships between a campus’s buildings, site, and available natural resources in developing a program for sustainable campus development.
Evaluate infrastructure options, building systems, and design strategies that support a university's planning goals for energy conservation and sustainability.
Illustrate effective building renovation design strategies that improve the functional, economic, and energy-use performance of existing campus buildings in support of an overall program for the responsible management of campus assets.
Identify the key concerns when designing campus buildings that are considered net zero or ultra-low energy users.
