Energy-efficient features and the use of recycled building materials in Donald Bren Hall have earned UCI its fourth LEED Gold certification since March 2007 from the U.S. Green Building Council. The certification denotes environmentally responsible building design, construction and operation. The 147,975-square-foot facility houses the School of Information & Computer Sciences. “These prestigious awards reflect UCI’s commitment to green building design,” said Wendell Brase, vice chancellor for administrative & business services. “To date, every UCI construction project to complete the LEED process has achieved a Gold rating from the U.S. Green Building Council.”
