During construction and throughout its life cycle, buildings affect the environment around them. Cal Poly Pomona is committed to designing, constructing, renovating, and maintain facilities in the most sustainable manor feasible, providing safe and sustainable learning and working environments for students, faculty, and staff.
The Residential Suites, Phase 2, College of Business Administration, and ASI Recreation Center are the first facilities at Cal Poly Pomona to be designed and/or constructed in accordance with the LEED rating system.
LEED, an acronym for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is an internationally recognized third-party rating system to guide the development of environmentally friendly buildings. Areas covered by LEED include Site Selection, Water Efficiency, Energy & Atmosphere, Materials & Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality, and Innovation in Design. Based on the types of sustainable features included in the project, points are awarded. The points then determine the LEED rating of the project—certified, silver, gold, or platinum.
