MU Foundation Hall 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: Site Selection: Site utilizing close pedestrian and public transit access. No new parking. Built on previously developed site. Composite Ventilated Roof Insulation Panels: Cools shingles in hot weather reduce Heat Island Effect. Shingles contain nearly 90% recycled material. Steel: All steel products contain minimum 25% recycled steel. Demolition Debris: All demolished asphalt parking lot was taken to an appropriate recycling area and diverted from the land fill. No CFC were used. Water and Energy Conservation: Motion sensor faucets. Low-flow flushing. Motion sensor lighting. Green Materials: Plastic Laminates : Wilson Art All WilsonArt plastic laminates have been awarded GREEN GUARD Indoor Air Quality Certification. Selected laminates are low emitting surfacing materials. Solid Surface Material: Formica Member of the USGBC (U.S. Green Building Council). Masonry: Brick (100% Recyclable) Windows: Glass with Low-E coating reflects most of sun’s rays. Aluminum Storefront System: Glass with Low-E coating reflects most of sun’s rays. Aluminum Frames with thermal break to reduce heat transfer. Gypsum Board: High Mold and Moisture resistance improving Indoor Air Quality. TS fluorescent lamps were used which are smaller in size, reducing manufacturing materials, and shipping impact on transportation costs.
