South: Tour - Low Impact & LEED at Trinity University
Friday, October 6, 2023

(Parking at Alamo Stadium, lot D)

Tour Starts at 3:00 pm

About the Tour:

Join us for a tour of innovative Low Impact Development and LEED practices at Trinity University including green stormwater infrastructure and high-performance buildings. Tour CSI - the Center for the Sciences and Innovation, certified as a LEED Gold facility, to learn about the on-site stormwater management practices including green roof, bioswale and stormwater cistern, as well as the enthalpy wheel energy recovery system. 

After CSI we will visit the newest building on campus, Dicke Hall, and hear from the design team about this highly efficient mass timber building.  With minimal embodied carbon and operational energy consumption, Dicke Hall provides many other benefits for environmental quality and ecological health.
