  • First Building with Green Roof Completed

    The first building on Centennial Campus to include a green roof has been completed. The 248,000-square foot Engineering Building III will begin accepting students in August as part of the beginning of the academic calendar year. The roof of the building, which tops the high bay annex, consists of 10 different drought resistant plans and will save the university an estimated 25-50 percent on heating and cooling costs. The roof also creates a physically pleasing environment that retains more rainfall, eliminates the need for weed control and negates the need to use harsh chemicals. In addition, the green roof is expected to reduce noise pollution by 10 decibels.
