In the News: Sustainable Design and Construction
The Energy Advancement and Innovation Center (EAIC), along with the Combined Heat and Power Plant (CHP), will contribute to Ohio State's sustainability goals, according to a recent article by The Lantern.
"It's not just one thing in a building... it's a living, breathing structure," said Kristin Poldemann, associate vice president of Facilities Design and Construction, about the EAIC. The facility will prioritize multiple passive and active strategies to reduce energy consumption, including through the use of a solar roof and translucent wall panels.
These features align with a progressive udate to the university's Sustainable Design and Construction policy, adopted early in 2021.
