Dalhousie's newest academic building, at the corner of Coburg Road and LeMarchant Street is also the greenest place on campus. The building officially opened September 24th, 2010.
The building's designers are hoping to receive a gold LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating. The green building rating system was developed to spur green design. LEED certification will also be sought for the other new building being constructed on campus, the Life Science Research Institute or LSRI.
The building features a long list of green attributes including: bike racks on the perimeter of the building and in the basement; a shower room and lockers for use of cyclists; a cistern to collect nonpotable water, organic food selections at Topio's, a pizza counter on the first floor; 85 heat pumps to recirculate heat from different parts of the building; high-efficiency lighting with sensors that detect when a room is in use or not; FSC-certified maple paneling; "OptiNet" air quality sensors that measure humidity, carbon dioxide and small particles; recycling and organics bins on each floor; low-flo fixtures in the bathrooms; rainwater collected from the roof and gutters is used to flush toilets; "Bubbledeck" technology used, a construction method that uses fewer materials and energy than traditional methods; "green" roof, planted with drought-resistant sedum and grasses; "Solarwall", about 200 metres square, to preheat ventilation air.
Mona Campbell was ranked among Canada's top CEOs as the head of Dover Industries, which she took over in 1954. During her leadership the company grew to revenues of $228-million and employed 475 people. She was named to the Order of Canada in 1996. She also received an honorary degree from Dalhousie in 1982, served on the Board of Governors for over a decade and was a generous benefactor of the university.
