Saint Martin’s University; McGranahan Architects
The Saint Martin’s University Engineering Building (aka Cebula Hall) is a 25,000 square foot engineering instruction building located in the heart of campus. It is a LEED platinum building (one of the top rated in the world), and our team was delighted to provide civil engineering design services including grading, drainage, and utility design. We also provided LEED design and documentation for sustainable site points.
The building itself is also a lab, with many innovative features. Among others, these include: a 90% heat recovery ventilator; a large roof-top, photovoltaic array; a rain garden; and open structure design so students can see the building systems at work. An interactive, online dashboard lets students instantaneously track all energy usage for the building.
“It was very exciting to work on a LEED platinum project. The design team knew throughout design and construction that platinum was the goal. Not only did the project earn a platinum rating, it was the highest rated LEED-certified building in the Western Hemisphere.”
