The Zelnak Center recently became the Institute’s fourth
building to earn LEED gold certification.
The basketball practice facility, which opened in October
2009, is named for alumnus and donor Steven Zelnak and is used by both the
Georgia Tech men’s and women’s basketball teams. It includes a full-size court,
six baskets, weight room, the Robert A. Anclien Strength & Conditioning
Center and a theater.
You probably know that the center of campus has been a hotbed of construction since winter. But you may not be aware that one of these projects is meant to improve energy efficiency on campus.
Georgia Tech Facilities is replacing steam and condensate lines — some of which are more than 50 years old — under Bobby Dodd Way and under sidewalks and steps from the library’s main entrance down the steps between the two libraries to Architecture East.
Following the North Avenue Apartments (NAA) attaining LEED
Gold status for Existing Buildings (EB) Operations and Maintenance (O&M) in
December, the complex was dedicated this week to note the honor.
Georgia Tech President G. P. “Bud” Peterson and Executive
Director of Housing Mike Black made remarks in front of the apartments
