The renovation of a nearly 120-year-old building on UB’s South Campus has resulted in certification from the most widely used green building rating system in the world.

UB and Rochester-based architecture firm SWBR recently completed an $8.7 million adaptive reuse renovation of Townsend Hall, which received Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.

“We are proud to announce another transformation of an iconic building here at UB and doing so in a way that advances our climate action work and complements our Campus Master Plan,” says Tonga Pham, associate vice president for university facilities.

Townsend Hall is now home to UB Human Resources, which moved in to the building in November 2020.

“Human Resources was excited to be selected to move into Townsend and we are learning every day how best to live and work within the space,” says Mark Coldren, associate vice president for human resources. “The natural light, single-use restrooms, a lactation space for South Campus, dynamic learning spaces, and lots of flexible space with technology to facilitate hybrid work make our new home terrific.”

Designed by Buffalo architect George Metzger, Townsend Hall was built in 1903 as the nurses’ dormitory for the Erie County Almshouse. In 1931, E.B. Green was commissioned to renovate the building, now owned by UB, and it became known as the Biology Building, according to the University Archives.

The building is named for Harriet A. Townsend (1839-1916), who founded the Women’s Educational and Industrial Union of Buffalo in 1884.

UB and SWBR began renovations in 2016. Townsend now features an adaptable, functional floor plan that provides a range of comfortable workspaces, with enough flexibility for future uses without having to do further renovations.

The renovation incorporated sustainable design strategies that resulted in improved energy efficiency, while maintaining more than 80% of the existing exterior walls, floors and roof structure.

The U.S. Green Building Council bestows LEED certification based on points accumulated: Certified (40-49 points), Silver (50-59), Gold (60-79) and Platinum (80 or more). The Townsend Hall project received 62 points to earn Gold certification, becoming UB’s eighth LEED Gold building. Others include the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences building and the Clinical and Translational Research Center (CTRC) on the Downtown Campus, Greiner Hall on the North Campus, and Hayes Hall on the South Campus.

Townsend scored Excellent Marks for community connectivity, accommodations for low-emission and fuel-efficient vehicles, and public transportation access.

Killexams : Concordia buildings recognized for their greenhouse gas reductions

Concordia’s energy efficiency efforts were celebrated through this year’s edition of BOMA Québec’s Building Energy Challenge (BEC). The commercial property owners and managers association recognized the university for eight of the 12 buildings it entered.

Notably, the John Molson Building (MB) earned a Diamond Distinction — the highest distinction — in the education and laboratory category.

“MB is one of our LEED-certified, smart buildings. It was built with systems that regulate based on occupancy,” explains Marie-Claude Lavoie, associate-vice president of Facilities Management.

For a Diamond, building owners need to show reductions in energy consumption and greenhouse gas emission (GHG) of between 50 and 90 per cent from 2018 to 2021.

“While many of us were working and learning from home due to the pandemic, the MB was able to cut energy use rather than operating on default mode,” Lavoie says.

The human side of buildings

Six buildings earned Platinum rankings, awarded for GHG reductions of 20 to 50 per cent compared to 2018. They include the Guy-De Maisonneuve (GM) Building, the Jesuit Residence (JR), the Grey Nuns Residence (GN) and the Z, M and B annexes. The Visual Arts (VA) Building won silver.

“Many of those are older buildings where we still have work to do,” Lavoie says. “However, what the ranking demonstrates is the commitment of our property management team: we cut emissions because our staff undertook energy-saving measures appropriate to each space.”

The ranking doesn’t show the performance of newer buildings. Lavoie notes that because they are already more efficient, they weren’t entered in the contest.

“For example, even if the Applied Science Hub fit into this year’s BEC dates, it wouldn’t make sense to enter it. As demonstrated by its LEED Gold certification, it significantly exceeds industry standards.”

The World Needs More Cowboys.
 Start your adventure now!

When you look at a skyscraper or one of UW’s beautiful, new buildings, not only do you see the work of architects, engineers and hands-on builders, you are also viewing the work of construction managers.

Who prepares the budget, hires and supervises contractors? Who keeps track of timelines, ensures the project meets safety codes and wrangles logistics to keep things on time and on budget?

Construction managers, that’s who.

These are the mission-critical players that see to it that buildings rise, roads progress and homes are built according to spec.

What is Construction Management?

Construction management (CM) is the study of what it takes to complete large and small vertical and horizontal construction projects using specialized project management techniques to oversee the planning, design and construction of a project from beginning to end. 

Relying heavily on active learning that includes field trips, site visits, team projects and internships, UW’s program builds on courses in construction management, business, communications, engineering and design, while also stressing Building Information Modeling (BIM), the state-of-the-art 3-D virtual modeling systems professionals use to design and manage today’s building projects.

This very practical degree program prepares you to enter a rapidly growing industry equipped with real-world, cutting-edge skills.

$105,000 is the national average salary for construction managers*

Killexams : Sustainability at Willamette University

Creating a Smaller Ecological Footprint

U.S. Green Building Council LEED standards have guided campus construction and renovation projects for over a decade. We are an institutional member of the Climate Leadership Network and have implemented energy management systems and energy efficiency projects that have helped us cutting energy consumption significantly.

We offer a range of transportation options and subsidies, including subsidized bus passes, car sharing, rideshare programs, a free bike registration and lock program, and a campus Bike Shop, staffed by student volunteers, offers free bike loans.

Praised as one of the most beautiful “urban walks” in the state, the Willamette grounds are even greener than they look. One of the few certified organic campuses in the U.S., lawns are fertilized with compost tea, native plants reduce the need for water and chemicals, most weeds are hand-pulled rather than sprayed, and leftover garden debris provides compost for community gardens.

The Willamette food service, Bon Appetit, partners with local farms, ranches and fisheries to offer organic, hormone-free, sustainably produced food. Students even volunteer with spring planting projects at local farms to better understand how our food is produced. Menus feature in-season and locally produced food to reduce transportation costs and pollution. Cooking oil is recycled, food leftovers are given to local ranchers, and disposable tableware is made from sugarcane or recycled paper.
