This tour of the CU Boulder Student Recreation Center will highlight the building's state-of-the-art green building technology and LEED certification process currently underway. Rebecca Rice, LEED AP BD&C Senior Sustainability Consultant at NORESCO, will facilitate this tour and talk about the other LEED projects on campus as well.
The student driven project fully renovated and expanded the existing Student Recreation Center and is expected to be one of the most energy efficient facilities of its kind in the country. Despite adding more than 69,000 sf to the existing facility, the renovated building will have an energy use intensity (EUI) of 35 kBTU/sf/yr. This represents an energy savings of approximately 70% when compared to similar facilities with ice rinks and swimming pools. Energy saving measures implemented in this building include:
• Heat recovery loop
• Solar thermal panels mounted on the roof
• Highly efficient indirect-direct evaporative cooling
• Displacement ventilation
• Low-energy overhead destratification fans
• LEDs and daylight harvesting controls

The University has a goal of LEED Gold+ for all new facilities or major renovations on campus. This designation of Gold + means that CU requires the design team to focus on water use reduction and energy cost savings above all other goals. This is achieved by early energy modeling and analysis and CU Design & Construction standards for highly efficient indoor plumbing fixtures and lighting power density goals of between 0.5 and 0.8 w/sf.
Approved for 1.5 AIA LU/HSW and .75 BPI CEUs.
