Sustainability

UMKC adheres to new building energy standards developed by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers, the same standards practiced by the state of Missouri. Standards include efficient insulation and glazing, heat recovery, occupancy sensors for light and temperature control, and improved electric motors.

Through their association, UMKC students asked the university, by resolution, to strive for LEED accreditation on all new buildings. Anticipated to obtain LEED Silver certification, the facility features public transportation access, storm water control, natural lighting, skylights, high ceilings, a central stairway and a 6,300-square-foot multi-purpose area that is divisible into four rooms.
