July 5, 2009
Building will use 40 percent less water than comparable facility

News release: St. Petersburg College in St. Petersburg, Fla., has received gold LEED certification for its new Student Services Building on the St. Petersburg/Gibbs campus. The building's sustainable features include "Energy Star" product specification, and a large, energy-efficient industrial ceiling fan to help cool the building. Green cleaning products are used to maintain the space, and permanent entryway systems capture dirt and particulates. Reflective roofing and paving materials result in cooler surfaces. The building is expected to use 40 percent less water than a comparable building by using low-flow fixtures, dual-flush toilets and waterless urinals. The architect is Canerday, Belfsky + Arroyo, Architects.
