Commissioning Provided for University’s LEED Gold Facility
Stanley Consultants provided professional commissioning services for the construction and renovation of two facilities on the campus of Northern Arizona University resulting in LEED Gold certification for one of the buildings.
Commissioning is a quality-oriented process for achieving, verifying, and documenting that the performance of facilities, systems, and assemblies meets defined objectives and criteria. It begins early in the pre-design phase and continues through the life of the facility.
Commissioning services for the newly renovated Extended Campus included new construction and renovations to the existing communications building at the University's central campus. The LEED Gold certified building highlights a solar wall, green wall, chilled beams, day lighting, and natural ventilation features.
Commissioning services for the University's new Health and Learning Center in Flagstaff, Arizona included a 40,000 square-foot addition to the Recreation Center; a 33,000 square-foot renovation of existing recreation space; 82,000 square feet of new classrooms; and 100,000 square feet of new health-related services. The new Health and Learning Center continues Northern Arizona University's commitment to sustainable healthy lifestyles for its students. It was designed and commissioned to meet or exceed the requirements for a "Gold Rating" by the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating tool.
