This presentation is for attendees interested in learning about how to update or build new facilities that model campus sustainability. SF State’s new Mashouf Wellness Center, on track to achieve LEED Platinum, employed a number of strategies to convey stakeholder value, significantly reduce energy and water use, and explore the latest design approaches for aquatic centers. Learn how sustainable design helped frame the campus’s goal of integrating environmental wellness and recreation.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn how to promote and gain buy-in from stakeholders to reach sustainability goals.
  • Adopt new strategies for designing new and upgrading old recreation wellness centers, which are typically water- and energy-intensive buildings, to be models of campus wellness, efficiency, and conservation.
  • Draw upon national examples of sustainable aquatic centers to upgrade, renovate, or build new ones with the latest technology.
