No place like (a new) home - Around the Arch
December 2012 Issue
UGA’s College of Environment and Design (CED) dedicated its new building in September. Located at 285 South Jackson Street, the mid-century building previously was occupied by the School of Art but got a makeover focused on sustainability for its new occupants. CED worked with the UGA Office of Sustainability on the building’s rehabilitation, which included installing solar panels on the roof. The panels were purchased through MAGE SOLAR USA, a Dublin-based producer of U.S.-assembled and American Recovery and Reinvestment Act-compliant solar photovoltaic-modules. The panels will provide an estimated 30,000 kilowatt hours of electricity each year, approximately enough energy to power 90 fluorescent T8 lights for 10 hours a day or 189 laptops eight hours a day for an entire year. CED is home to one of the oldest and largest schools of landscape architecture in the U.S. and offers degrees in landscape architecture, historic preservation and environmental planning and design, as well as a certificate in environmental ethics.
