In May 2011, Grant MacEwan University [1] announced the opening of its University Service Centre in Canada, the first phase of its Single Sustainable Campus initiative. Built to LEED Silver standards, the USC features natural lighting, low VOC materials, water conservation measures and a solar-reflective roof, among other sustainable actions. The building’s energy performance was also optimized to reduce consumption by an impressive 40%.
