ANEW Field Trip #2

Take a tour around the South Shore campus of Hillsborough Community College in Ruskin on Sunday, November 13 from 10am-noon. The $10 trip fee will be split between Camp Bayou and the scholarship fund at HCC- South Shore.

The US Green Building Council has honored the SouthShore Campus with “LEED Gold” certification. This the first time that a full college campus in Florida has received LEED Certification. The unique campus has also received honors from the American Institute of Architects (Tampa Bay), the Leroy Collins Center and the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties (NAIOP Tampa Bay) for its innovative “Green” architecture. Among the innovations used on the campus are: storm water recycling, under floor HVAC, recycled materials, bio-filtration, dual sensor lighting and a unique geographical alignment. During weekdays, nearly 4,000 persons work and study on the campus. Yet, the unique design gives each person a sense of connection with the external environment. Hillsborough Community College has committed that all future buildings on this site will meet or exceed LEED “Green Building” Standards.
