  • UCF’s Global Building to Improve Energy Costs by 30%


    Construction is progressing at the newest building on the University of Central Florida campus. The Global UCF building construction pursues energy and water efficiency through modern technologies appearing for the first time on campus.

    According to Dave Norvell, PE, LEED AP, C.E.M., Energy Manager, Sustainability & Energy Management for UCF, the chilled beam air conditioning system provides control to competently and quietly cool space-by-space. The new technology is four times more efficient than traditional systems and improves energy costs by 30%.

    Additional energy savings are achieved through LED light fixtures, high efficiency window glazing and daylighting controls throughout, said Norvell.

    The three-story, 51,000-square-foot building, located across from Memory Mall and the Towers Residence Halls, will serve as the new hub for the Global UCF program. In addition to classrooms, the new building will feature study areas and administration offices and was designed according to LEED Silver design standards. Energy Air was contracted with Clancy & Theys Construction.
