A new $79.1 million health and learning center is under construction on the Northern Arizona University campus in Flagstaff. The 270,000-sf facility will house recreation space, classrooms, health and counseling services, and the Lumberjack Stadium for track and soccer teams. Designed by the Phoenix office of OWP/P Cannon Design with Mortenson Construction as CM, the project is aiming for LEED Gold certification. Sustainable features include a 45% reduction in potable water usage, 100 solar panels that produce 70% of its domestic hot water, 23% reduction in lighting power density, and efficient mechanical equipment, including heat recovery. A fall 2011 completion date is expected.
