|Featuring sustainable "green" design elements, the
new building includes wireless classrooms, flexible learning laboratories,
office clusters, and common areas that encourage communication
including, "plug-and-learn" alcoves built into spaces
often underutilized in traditional building designs and a centrally
located E-café where faculty, staff, students, and industry
partners can gather to share ideas.
Built to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) “Gold” specifications
for sustainability, the Kelley Engineering Center’s many “green” building
elements will be used to educate students and others about sustainability
and renewable energy issues, before, during, and long after construction.
Ceilings Plus panels minimize contribution to indoor air contamination because they are fabricated off-site to reduce on-site cutting and finishing, they do not contain frangible materials that release fibers or dust, and have smooth, dense surfaces that are easy to clean.
Prefabricated panels from Ceilings Plus are factory-cut to size, significantly reducing field cutting and scrap that would have to be diverted into the construction waste stream. In addition, panels are wrapped to minimize packaging while still protecting the panels during transport and handling.
Each panel is held in place by torsion springs and the panel can easily be removed for access to the plenum.
Arboreal wood panels contain no added urea-formaldehyde resins.
