Building & Grounds

Emissions associated with building, maintaining, and operating campus buildings over their lifecycle represent a large portion of institutional greenhouse gas emissions.  Wesleyan has committed to meet or exceed the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED Silver standard or equivalent for new construction and major renovations.  The SAGES Buildings and Grounds subcommittee is currently developing its section of the Sustainability Action Plan to include more rigorous guidelines that increase the sustainability of campus buildings. 

Each year, Wesleyan undertakes a number of Major Maintenance projects.  FY 2016 proposed projects are on the website; send comments to Roseann Sillasen.
