Savery Hall

LEED-NC v2.1 - Gold Rating Awarded

LEED Documentation

The project achieved LEED Gold Certification through the U.S. Green Building Council/Green Building Certification Institute in September 2010.  The project scope included correction of seismic deficiencies, replacement of electrical, lighting, mechanical, and communications systems. A second elevator, replacement of the existing elevator, modifications to restrooms, ramping and other access improvements were also included in the renovation to bring the building into ADA compliance. The project budget included adding new structure, systems, finishes and equipment for an additional 10,000 assignable square feet in the attic space.  The building exterior has been cleaned and sealed and architectural features have been preserved where appropriate in the building hallways and common areas. In addition, exterior ornamental masonry attachments have been better secured to the building's structure.

Savery Hall houses the College of Arts and Sciences' Departments of Economics, Philosophy, and Sociology, and also provides space for the Center of Social Science Computation and Research (CSSCR), a computer resource center that provides facilities and support for all the social science units. Altogether there are 25 general assignment classrooms in Savery Hall, with a total of 1,025 seats.
