University Park of Boca Earns Green Certification

University Park of Boca, a four-story, 159-unit student housing project in Palm Beach County, has been certified as a Florida Green High-Rise Residential Building by the Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC).

Located in the heart of Boca Raton, University Park is convenient to restaurants, shopping, and local colleges. A shuttle service to campuses, a swimming pool, courtyard gathering place, fitness center, juice bar, and game room all serve to create a destination place for students, reducing the need for automobiles.

When planning the project, the design and construction teams utilized building information modeling (BIM) to optimize the efficiencies related to design, materials, construction, and operations.

The energy performance of the building is 30 percent better than required by the Florida Energy Code, augmented by the installation of Energy Star washers, dryers, refrigerators, and ceiling fans in each unit. Light colored interior finishes with a high solar reflective value also help to improve the building’s energy performance. [More]

FGBC Background and Mission

The Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC) is a nonprofit 501(C)3 Florida corporation dedicated to improving the built environment. Our mission is to lead and promote sustainability with environmental, economic, and social benefits through regional education and certification programs.

FGBC was conceived and founded in the belief that green building programs will be most successful if there are clear and meaningful principles on which "green" qualification and marketing are based. We are a membership-based organization governed by a Board of Directors and corporate officers who are elected by the general membership.

The FGBC is continually finding new and innovative ways to educate builders, developers, local governments, and consumers about how to achieve a healthier, more environmentally sustainable future.

The purposes of the Florida Green Building Coalition are:

Awards

2004 - Sustainable Florida 'Best Practices' Award
