Authors: Johnson, Robert

Abstract: The goal of this project is to transform the Environmental Center (EC) and surrounding Sustainability Courtyard (SC) into a center for civic engagement where sustainable practices are initiated, implemented, and demonstrated to the University of Hawaii at Manoa (UHM) community. There are dozens of modular buildings similar to the EC on UHM campus being utilized as office spaces, conference rooms, libraries, and fulfilling numerous other purposes, as well as hundreds of these same modular buildings being utilized statewide by the Department of Education (DOE). For UHM students, a project focused on modular buildings similar to the EC presents opportunities to expedite the process of conducting studies, collecting data, and implementing sustainability initiatives in the average student’s four-year tenure. An outcome of these efforts will be a reinvigorated SC that serves as a symbol of UHM’s commitment to a greener campus and ultimately positions the university to become a leader in the implementation of sustainable technologies.
