The U.S. Green Building Council has awarded the Arizona State University (ASU) Tempe Sun Devil Fitness Complex a LEED® Platinum Certification – the highest level offered which demonstrates the commitment to environmental standards of excellence.

Designed by Studio Ma/Sasaki and built by Gilbane Building Company , the new recreation complex has many sustainability elements incorporated into the facility, such as:

  •     93.3% of on-site generated construction waste was diverted from landfills.
  •     21.29% of the total building materials value includes materials and products that have been manufactured and extracted within 500 miles of the project.
  •     28 of 35 Energy and Atmosphere credits were awarded. Because of this energy conscious design the building realizes an energy cost savings of 63.63% and through renewable energy generated on-site, 20.62% of the total energy costs is offset.

“Achieving LEED Platinum Certification for the ASU Sun Devil Recreation Complex project was no small effort, and was truly a team effort between Arizona State University, Studio Ma/Sasaki and Gilbane” said Tom Goderre, Gilbane’s Vice President in charge of the company’s Arizona business unit. “Gilbane is proud to have been a part of such a great project team and this Platinum Certification reaffirms Gilbane’s commitment to building environmentally sustainable projects.”
