Most energy efficient building on Boston University’s Campus is completed

The latest Boston University building is not just the tallest on the urban Charles River campus, but it is also the tallest as well as the university's most energy-efficient building and one of the most sustainable buildings in all of Massachusetts.

Suffolk announced the completion of the project, Boston University Center for Computing & Data Sciences, designed with intellectual collaboration top of mind and with the goal to make a positive impact.

A few notable facts about the building:

  • First of its kind on the campus, the new building does not use any fossil fuels, which also makes it one of the most sustainable buildings in Massachusetts
  • Suffolk installed 31 bores that reach 1,500-feet underground, twice the height of the building, and each of the bores utilize the Earth’s natural geothermal resources to heat and cool the building
  • It features terraces and green roofs that not only look stunning but also reduce the urban heat island effect
  • The unique design is composed of a series of floorplates shifted and cantilevered around the building’s central core, creating a vertically stacked and staggered layout of “neighborhoods” for each academic discipline
  • At 19-stories high and 345,000 square feet, this is now the tallest building on campus
