Frank A. Cassell Hall
Cassell Hall is a two-story, 16,500 square-foot building that has been designed to realize 30 percent annual energy savings and reduce water usage by 50 percent. A Silver LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) designation for this building is anticipated and would be the first such LEED certification on campus. The USGBC review is expected to be completed in 2013.
A minimum of 25 percent recycled materials and 25 percent local and regional materials were used in the buildings construction. Fifty-percent of the scrap material created by the buildings construction was recycled or salvaged.
The building houses a state-of-the-art computer lab for 80 students, a student lounge, a computer classroom, a video-conferencing classroom for distance learning, an instructional technology training classroom, faculty offices, staff offices, and workspace and storage for media and instructional technology services.
