SOLAR ENERGY PROJECT
This solar energy project, in which the University is working in partnership with Standard Solar, Inc.,will result in the installation of solar arrays on three UD buildings – the Delaware Field House, the Clayton Hall conference center and 461 Wyoming Road. UD's initial solar array will include more than 2,000 panels to yield an 850-kilowatt solar electric system. Once completed, UD's system is expected to generate approximately 1,035 kilowatt hours of electricity each year and result in 1,810,000 fewer pounds of carbon dioxide being emitted annually. The avoided emissions will be the equivalent of reducing the use of 93,363 gallons of gasoline each year. The largest array of solar panels, which is planned for the Delaware Field House, will be the largest single rooftop installation in the state of Delaware. More Information
EAST CAMPUS UTILITY PLANT PROJECT
This 25,000-square-foot facility designed by Baltimore-based Ayers Saint Gross will provide the university with added chilled water capacity and new 35KVa electric service to meet utility demands for new and future construction on the ease campus. The three-level building houses a pair of 2,750 ton chillers, a new electrical substation and cooling towers, and is large enough to accommodate additional chillers in the future.
The building is located north of the Russell student housing complex adjacent to the new Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Lab. Its design of brick, slate and metal panels is designed to harmonize with the existing architecture on campus and the new Science and Engineering Building. The expression and celebration of the inner workings of the plant will allow it to be used as a teaching tool for engineering students.
LIFE SCIENCES RESEARCH FACILITY
The new 15,000 square foot facility will be located between McKinly Laboratory and East Hall along E. Delaware Ave.
The new facility will provide a fully functional vivarium laboratory. Construction to begin fall of 2011 and is scheduled to be complete Winter 2012.
