PROJECT LOCATION

SUSTAINABILITY FEATURES Central downtown location capitalizes on existing utility infrastructure and public transportation. Site selection and full utilization of this important downtown block completes the University’s 1992 Master Plan. A vibrant transportation hub, street car, light rail and bus transportation are all directly adjacent to and fully integrated with pedestrian and vehicle modes.

ASRC INFORMATION Building Area: 208,000 sq ft Number of Floors: 6 + Basement Total Construction Cost: $62,000,000 Ground Level Amenities: PSU Bike Hub, Greenline Market, Retail/ Restaurants Public Transportation: Bus, Max, Streetcar

Water usage is reduced by over 85% with water efficient strategies. Reclaimed water for water closets, dual flush fixtures, infrared sensor control faucets and low flow heads, and highly efficient irrigation contribute to the projected savings. Stormwater management includes storage, treatment and reclamation. Rainwater from the roof is captured, stored and reused on site to flush water closets and serve as fire suppression water. Eco-roof planters on the fifth level terrace retain and treat storm water reducing overflow. Site storm water is also treated with a water quality filtration system. Construction debris has been carefully handled. 95% of the demolition and construction waste has been diverted from land fill. All materials have been evaluated with sustainable criteria. Over 10% (post consumer + ½ pre-consumer) of the total value of material in the project has recycled content. Over 10% of the value of material used has been extracted, processed and manufactured regionally (within 500 miles of the site). Daylighting (use of natural light on the interior) and connection between interior spaces and interior to exterior spaces was a design priority. Daylight controlled electric light fixtures turn off when daylight conditions are sufficient for the task or space use, provide better lighting and reducing the electricity demand and the building cooling load.

29% less energy used. Strategies include: Highly efficient mechanical and electrical equipment; effective daylighting; high performance exterior envelop with exterior sun screens, insulated dual pane glazing and highly insulated wall; flexible ventilation system; reuse of existing well water drawn from and re-injected to the aquifer to eliminate cooling plant; all incorporated to reduce energy consumption.

Project Description:

Academic & Student Recreation Through the development of my Center profession, an increasing interest and talent for graphics has emerged. The result of this is graphics that are well composed, portray a mood, establish identity and are informative of their purpose.

GRAPHIC DEVELOPMENT Role: Graphics Development Programs Utilized: SketchUp, Photoshop, InDesign


Project Description: As a gift my father gave me the camera that he captured my precious childhood moments with. I now use it to capture the life around me and have taken to compositions that find beauty in decay, texture and seemingly out-ofplace objects.
