The United States Green Building Council (USGBC) awarded the certification under its Building Design + Construction rating system, which considers a development’s basic building blocks, operational efficiencies, green material selection and sustainable design innovations.

Designed by Gensler, the Indimi Business Center’s many eco-friendly features include:

  • Indoor water use 92 percent lower than a typical academic building
  • Total outdoor water use 32 percent lower than LEED® baseline
  • 100 percent reflective roofing to help reduce the “heat island” effect that occurs when urban areas are hotter than surrounding rural areas
  • 21 percent of building materials made from recycled content
  • 16 percent of building materials sourced from within 500 miles of the project site
  • 68 percent of new wood responsibly harvested from Forest Stewardship Council-approved sources
  • 50 percent of the site has vegetated or pedestrian hardscape area
  • Individual and multi-occupant lighting and thermal controls for comfort and well-being
  • Location near public transportation hubs
  • Maximized access to natural daylight and external views
  • Widespread recycling program for glass, metal, cardboard, paper and plastic
  • Optimal air quality with increased ventilation systems and low-emission building materials

In addition to its sustainable objectives, the Indimi Business Center was designed with hands-on, technology-based learning in mind. It is outfitted with state-of-the-art systems to enhance students’ educational environments, with 11 classrooms and more than 15 spaces for collaboration between students, faculty and outside corporations.
