University of Minnesota Science Teaching and Student Services Building (STSS)

Project Details:

Location: Minneapolis, MN

Owner: University of Minnesota

The 115,000-square-foot STSS building features state-of the art “active learning” classrooms and numerous student services offices, including One Stop Student Services, veterans services and career services. LEED Gold and B3 certification was an integral part of the building’s design and construction. Energy saving strategies such as under floor air distribution, heat recovery on outside air and low water consumption plumbing fixtures were used to help achieve the LEED goals. The building used an enhanced commissioning process to ensure that systems operate as they were designed and intended.
