The Evergreen Valley College Math, Science, and Social Science building, which was completed in June 2016, has achieved LEED Platinum certification. The 84,500-SF sustainable and energy-efficient building utilizes cool roofing, high value insulation, daylighting, and low-emitting materials. In addition, we used adaptive/drought tolerant vegetation throughout the site, which resulted in 50 percent irrigation water savings.
The facility combines the math and science programs with social science to foster interdisciplinary communication. Students can work together in labs, convene in lecture rooms for traditional discourses, and visualize theories in the building’s experiment zones.
