Sustainable Design

The Office of the University Architect strives to enhance, conserve, and promote sustainable practices for the well-being of our students, faculty and staff and the built environment as outlined in Texas A&M University’s Campus Master Plan, “to promote sustainability by teaching, planning, and acting in an environmentally sustainable manner.”

Per university directive, buildings should be designed to qualify for a LEED Silver Rating. Buildings should be designed with environmentally sustainable features to minimize the environmental impact caused by their construction, and to minimize operational energy use.

The Office of the University Architect works closely with the Office of Sustainability.
