president for research. "Major support from the National Institutes of Health enables the University of Florida to take a national leadership position in this important endeavor. This building will provide critical infrastructure to enhance this activity."

The four-story building to be located at the northeast corner of Gale Lemerand Drive and Mowry Road is designed according to the LEED Platinum certification standards of the United States Green Building Council. Platinum is the highest of a four-level rating system aimed at responding to environmental challenges such as responsible use of resources, reduction of pollution and making indoor spaces conducive to good health and well being.

The new building incorporates features to improve indoor air quality through the use of low-emission building materials, efficient energy production and use through photovoltaic cells, and light sensor technologies and water conservation technologies. The project also calls for prevention of construction activity pollution and reduction of light pollution from the completed building.

"The new facility will take the university's LEED goals to the highest level and serve as another example of the commitment of the faculty and staff toward sustainable design and emphasis on energy efficiency," said Carol Walker, assistant vice president and director of UF's facilities planning and construction division.
