The University of New Mexico Arena, AKA the Pit, was awarded #LEED Silver for LEED BD+C: New Construction in 2012 for its addition and renovation project. Originally constructed in 1966 and built in a 37-foot hole, the Pit is one of the most unique venues in college sports. Sustainable features of the building include: designating 330,369 sq. ft. of open space (twice the square footage of the building footprint) that will be conserved for the life of the building. #UNM

#UCLA's expansion and renovation of Pauley Pavilion achieved #LEED Gold certification for New Construction in 2014. Pauley Pavilion is an excellent example of the principles of adaptive reuse. Located in the heart of UCLA's campus on an urban site with no room to expand horizontally or upward, UCLA opted for a brand new two-level facility under Bruin Walk.
