The 28,000 square foot Lokey Graduate School of Business  building sits as the symbolic gateway to Mills College. The building’s L-shaped plan is oriented to the southwest to optimize sun exposure, and the orientation creates a campus lawn at the intersection of the two main roads of campus.
The two-story building has a long and deep porch located on the lawn. This porch is topped with a living roof full of drought tolerant succulents. The porch is the main circulation space with the entry lobby and a series of informal spaces providing flexible opportunities for education. The integration of sustainable solutions is very visible and helps to educate the public on the building’s energy and water efficiency. In fact, the baseline water consumption was reduced by 80%, and the building has a 32% annual reduction in energy consumption!
The Greenbuild International Conference & Expo is the world’s largest green building conference. The conference brings together leaders, experts and professionals dedicated to sustainable building in order to inspire and educate other like-minded individuals for one week. This year’s expo will be in San Francisco from Monday November 12 to Saturday November 17. The Lokey Graduate School of Business tour  will be held on Saturday, November 17th, from 8am to 12pm. Along with the Lokey building, individuals will have the opportunity to tour the LEED Platinum Betty Irene Moore Natural Sciences Building and the Jeannik Mequet Littlefield Concert Hall.
