2140 The Marshall University Foundation Hall was built using a number of environmental and energy conservation methods. Below is a list of it’s many green features.

RETURN TO GREEN TRAIL


Green Strategies:

  1. Site Selection:
    • Site utilizing close pedestrian and public transit access.
    • No new parking.
    • Built on previously developed site.
  2. 0326Composite Ventilated Roof Insulation Panels:
    • Cools shingles in hot weather reduce Heat Island Effect.
    • Shingles contain nearly 90% recycled material.
  3. Steel:
    • All steel products contain minimum 25% recycled steel.
  4. Demolition Debris:
    • All demolished asphalt parking lot was taken to an appropriate recycling area and diverted from the land fill.
    • No CFC were used.
  5. 2002Water and Energy Conservation:
    • Motion sensor faucets.
    • Low-flow flushing.
    • Motion sensor lighting.

Green Materials:

  1. Plastic Laminates : Wilson Art
    • All WilsonArt plastic laminates have been awarded GREEN GUARD Indoor Air Quality Certification.
    • Selected laminates are low emitting surfacing materials.
  2. Solid Surface Material: Formica
    • Member of the USGBC (U.S. Green Building Council).
  3. Masonry: Brick (100% Recyclable)
  4. Windows:
    • Glass with Low-E coating reflects most of sun’s rays.
  5. Aluminum Storefront System:
    • Glass with Low-E coating reflects most of sun’s rays.
    • Aluminum Frames with thermal break to reduce heat transfer.
  6. Gypsum Board:
    • High Mold and Moisture resistance improving Indoor Air Quality.
  7. TS fluorescent lamps were used which are smaller in size, reducing manufacturing materials, and shipping impact on transportation costs.
