What UVU is Doing: Student Life and Wellness

Placeholder ImageUVU broke ground on its new Student Life and Wellness Center June 18, 2012 and it is scheduled for completion in December 2013. The building is being constructed to LEED silver certification standards.

Like the new Sciences building, the Student Life and Wellness Center will boast a fully automated control system, reflective glass systems, and innovative lighting techniques to reduce energy consumption.

Other similarities will include:

  • Low VOC content paints
  • Contaminant monitoring and prevention
  • Air flow systems to supply fresh air and minimize exhausts
  • Extra insulation in the roof
  • Higher standard water fixtures

The project has also been tasked with the goal of recycling 90 percent of construction waste.
