Butler-Hancock Project Receives LEED Gold Rating

The addition to Butler-Hancock Hall/Sports Pavilion, completed last fall, has received a LEED New Construction Gold rating from the U.S. Green Building Council. The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program rates buildings based on performance and "green" building practices. The Butler-Hancock addition is expected to use 34 percent less energy and 43 percent less water than if it had been built traditionally. Green technologies used in the project included additional insulation, low-flow plumbing fixtures, energy-efficient lighting, FSC-certified wood, low-emitting and non-toxic materials, and use of recycled materials. The construction team also diverted 1,076 tons, or 90 percent of construction waste from the landfill. The addition is UNC’s first LEED-certified building.
