UT_Athletics_slide_2     UT_Athletics_slide_10

The Schoomaker ROTC and Athletics Building is the most energy efficient new facility on campus to date and was achieved through proper integration of all building components including:

-Energy star reflective roof.
-Polyisocyanurate wall (R-value three times greater than code required) and roof (R-30) insulation does not degrade due to age or humidity.
-Double glazed, low-e coated glazing system.
-Frosted exterior glass to increase natural light levels inside the locker rooms while maintaining privacy.
-Occupancy sensors in all offices and most major spaces.
-Rooftop solar collectors largely meet hot water requirements.
-Automatic controls and low volume water fixtures.
