Current living lab projects
Planned for fall 2019:
- A group of students enrolled in the O'Neill undergraduate capstone will be benchmarking campus buildings against LEED Operations + Maintenance practices to make recommendations for how to improve operations in pursuit of LEED O+M certification for campus buildings. Based on their assessments, students will develop a protocol for the creation of a Green Building Report Card at IUPUI.
- The Center for Earth and Environmental Science (CEES) will be offering service learning experiences that collect data for IUPUI's first biodiversity assessment, as well as updating the campus' tree canopy data. Students from any class and major are welcome to sign up for these service learning events.
- The Industrial Assessment Center (IAC) will be conducting an energy audit of a campus building and making energy efficiency recommendations back to the campus.
