The University of Miami Green U initiative is a comprehensive program for all aspects of sustainability. The design, construction, and performance of buildings are a key piece in the University’s commitment. This commitment is extraordinarily important as not only does it minimize the impact on the environment, but it also promotes quality of life and health of the occupants. As an institution utterly committed to sustainability, the University of Miami Facilities Design and Construction Department has taken an aggressive approach, taking the lead through a progressive Green Building policy.
