To encourage students and visitors to utilize the
building, some of the space within the building will be provided for
multi-disciplinary gathering. This may include spaces to showcase
technologies and research developed at the center.
The building will also act as a learning laboratory. By
showcasing green building technologies and environmental research, the
facility will teach students, users, and visitors about integrated
holistic thinking. Additionally, the building will help teach users how to
manage a building to improve its environmental performance.
The building will also include a technology transfer
center that includes areas for in house training, web based distance
learning, and a showcase space for environmental projects developed at CSE.
Connected via an Internet T2 line, the hub will include state of the art
servers and the infrastructure required for high-speed web streaming and
satellite dissemination. These training centers will also act as distance
learning studios. This will connect the center to other centers of
environmental excellence worldwide.
The Facility’s staff will be responsible for managing,
marketing, publishing, and the event coordination required to support the
activities of the center. This staff will be funded from the leasing
revenues generated from the building.
