Green Building Features: Peter W. Stanley Academic Quad

The Peter W. Stanley Academic Quad was dedicated on May 17, 2007, and marked the final project of a restoration project for the Academic Quad district - Mason, Crookshank, and Pearsons Halls. The quad acts as a garden and courtyard space between these three academic buildings.

Project Features

The redesign of the quad features the following sustainability features:

  • Reduction of turf by 5,000 square feet
  • Drought-tolerant landscape choices
  • Highly efficient closed-loop fountain to reduce water use
  • Bioswales to collect and filter stormwater and drain it into the natural aquifer
  • Outdoor teaching and social spaces
