FAU's Transformation - Higher Ed Presentation Technology & LEED

May 2, 2011
Based in Boca Raton, Fla., Atlantic University's (FAU) College of Engineering & Computer Science is committed to sustainability. The college's 97,000 square foot structure, opened in 2010, infuses the university's "green" principles, and leads the way as the first academic building in the State of Florida designed and built to LEED Platinum standards. "In working with AVI-SPL, we initially chose the building's technology because we were striving for the USGBC LEED platinum level certification," says Brenda Coto, managing director of technology and innovation, FAU. "What we ultimately found is that we were able to change the way that professors teach, as well as change the way students are learning." Technology integrated by AVI-SPL includes Tandberg video conferencing, Crestron DigitalMedia, the SMART Sympodium, Mitsubishi LaserVue's for energy savings and more.
