The facilities and maintenance buildings on most college campuses are often overlooked as a place where sustainable design can have an impact. As San Mateo County Community College District looked to replace/expand old maintenance facilities on the Cañada College campus, this project provided an opportunity to reinforce the District’s commitment to campus greening. These simple utilitarian structures serve as a home base for district facilities staff responsible for the operation and maintenance of the campus grounds and buildings. It seemed a natural starting place to promote energy efficiency and environmentally friendly maintenance practices. This project achieved LEED Gold certification.
