When Humber College set out to build its new gateway to the North Campus, sustainability was at top of mind. The Learning Resource Commons – a 260,000 square-foot building – opened in 2015.
The LEED Gold structure includes sustainable features such as 94 per cent construction waste diversion, a green roof, 100 kW of electricity from solar photovoltaic cells, energy-efficient lighting and HVAC systems, reserved carpool parking spaces, low VOC paint and low-flow and sensored bathroom fixtures.
The glass-fronted building was constructed with 20% recycled materials and houses a student gallery, the library, health centre, Aboriginal Resource Centre, the International Centre, a math and writing centre and much more.
