The 43,000-square-foot building uses passive solar design, is highly energy efficient and generates one-third of its energy needs by harnessing the power of wind and the sun. The building is not air conditioned; rather it uses the geothermal energy of the earth for heating and cooling and serves as a teaching tool for students in the college's construction, electrical, HVAC, engineering and architecture programs.
