The renovations to Newell Hall will create a more environmentally friendly and sustainable facility. The project is being designed and built to achieve LEED® Gold certification by the United States Green Building Council.  In order to meet this goal, the design and construction team is working closely with the University of Florida to incorporate a number of sustainable strategies, including:

  • Access to public transportation
  • Bicycle storage
  • Water efficient landscaping strategies
  • Existing building reuse
  • Use of low emitting paints and materials
  • Low flow water fixtures
  • Energy efficient equipment, building systems and lighting
