Santa Clara University's Sustainable Design Demonstration Building
Situated between academic and residential areas of the campus, the 7,500 square foot Commons serves as a community meeting place for faculty and students—housing classrooms, administrative offices, and a multipurpose room.
Benefits of Sustainable Building:
The Commons enables SCU to evaluate sustainable components that may be used in upcoming capital projects. This building demonstrates that sustainability responds to community, environmental, and economic needs.
In designing the new Commons, SCU brought together architectural and environmental experts to create a facility that promotes sustainable design and green building concepts by example and through education. The Commons serves as a learning laboratory by incorporating sustainable components and measuring their performance over time.
