Florida Atlantic University (FAU) in the US has secured LEED Platinum certification for its recently completed College of Engineering and Computer Science Building in Boca Raton from the US Green Building Council.

The five-storey facility, designed by Leo A Daly, houses the university’s computer science, electrical and computer engineering departments, and includes electrical instrumentation labs, computer build / circuitry labs, 5G technologies and specialised research labs.

The 97,000ft² building adopted chilled beam technology, temperature control systems, lighting control systems and a solar hot water system.

Other sustainable elements in the building include high-efficiency restroom fixtures and occupant sensors, which have helped reduce the building’s water consumption by 40%.
