The Davis Center was the first LEED-NC Gold Certified student center in the nation. Located at the “campus crossroads” between the academic and residential campuses, the building is a highly visible model of sustainability for the University of Vermont.
The 186,000 square foot building achieves energy savings of over 50% with a super-insulated building envelope and an integrated building management system. A green roof further reduces the building’s cooling load while creating a pleasant exterior plaza.
During construction, 92% of construction waste was diverted from the landfill, and over 60% of the new materials used were from local sources.Photos by Westphalen Photography
