U.S. Green Building Council Wisconsin Award of
WAUKESHA — Carroll University’s
year-old Doug and Nancy Hastad Hall has won a U.S. Green Building
Council Award of Excellence in the “Innovative Design, New
Construction” category. Hastad Hall was the first campus building to
achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design LEED certified
status in 2018. The LEED Silver certification is a worldwide rating
system that embodies achievement in sustainability.
The 38,224-square-foot, exercise science and physics/engineering
facility includes state-of-theart laboratories, simulation nursing
labs, classrooms and collaboration spaces.
“We’re very proud that Hastad Hall has earned this award,” said
President Cindy Gnadinger. “At Carroll University, we embrace our
history as Wisconsin’s first four-year institution of higher
learning while committing to creating cutting-edge facilities that
contribute to an enriched academic experience.”
Hastad features demand control ventilation, which significantly
reduces the building’s energy usage. Along with its efficient
ventilation system, the hall also boasts LED lighting that is based
on daylight harvesting, thermally efficient windows and a
water-reduction strategy that has led to 44.8 percent decrease in
estimated water usage.
Hastad Hall also has a green roof, which helps manage stormwater
runoff while minimizing the heat island effect of the roof. The
roof’s greenery compliments the rooftop patio, which offers a space
to host an event while admiring the view.
