Building and Landscape Design

 

Mission

Identify and implement sustainable practices for building and landscape design on Georgia College campuses.

Goals

  • Explore the use of storm water to irrigate landscaping
  • Create a centralized control for all campus irrigation
  • Evaluate Geoblock grass parking lots on campus.
  • Have new construction meet or exceed the University System of Georgia Sustainable Energy Management Plan (pdf) and meet LEED certification standards.
  • Certify new buildings and renovations under the Georgia Peach Green Building Rating System (pdf).
  • Have renovations meet or exceed the Georgia Sustainable Energy Management Plan.
  • Create specific building standards for Georgia College
  • Have at least two employees from Facilities Services become LEED Accredited Professionals

 

Activities

Georgia College uses the latest technologies in building and grounds management.  Our landscaping program utilizes stormwater management, native plantings, and compost cycling.  Already we have one LEED Silver building (Wellness & Recreation Center), and are targeting the renovation of Ennis Hall for LEED Silver as well.  Please take a moment to examine the exciting sustainable designs in the Ennis Hall Targeting LEED Silver (pdf) document.

As we continue to grow and develop GC campus, there is a growing concern for the impacts of our buildings and landscaping.  Here are some links to help explain the concepts of sustainable design:
