Jim Fuda and Tom Tavella of BSC’s Connecticut office presented at Zweig White’s 2008 Land Development East conference on March 26 in Atlanta, GA.
The presentation, entitled “Bringing Sustainability to College Football: The Uconn Burton Family Football Complex and Mark R. Shenkman Training Center,” provided a case study of BSC’s innovative design approach for UConn’s first LEED-certified facility. The program advised participants on the project’s successful LEED certification process and highlighted special features associated with the project, such as involving the student community in the recycling effort, working on a highly constrained site, and completing a large-scale project in an active campus area.
BSC Group provided integrated civil engineering and landscape architecture services for the project. The project was the first LEED-certified facility for both the University of Connecticut and the NCAA.
