Green Buildings

FSU Green Building Initiative

Since 2008, Florida State University has been committed to creating buildings designed with sustainability in mind. The Facilities Design and Construction team constantly work to maintain and update FSU's Design Guidelines in accordance with LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards and the latest science. New and current buildings are always looking to improve water efficiency, healthy interior and exterior environments, and building longevity. All new FSU projects valued at $2 million or more strive to be LEED Silver certified at the minimum, and otherwise follow sustainability recommendations given by the design time and regulation given in the University Design Guidelines. 

Currently, FSU has over one million square feet of certified green buildings, and a comprehensive list of certified buildings can be found here.
