Campus Project Information
Green building projects at Berkeley work to reduce building impacts on human health and the environment through the management of energy, water and materials resources during design, construction, operation and maintenance. Sustainable development is very important to the UC Berkeley community and the campus strives to design projects which demonstrate earth-friendly traits. Here are several examples that highlight Facilities Services' green building practices.
