The U.S. Green Building Council has awarded the Smith Aquatic Center a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification at the platinum level. That is the highest level offered by the organization. Construction waste did not end up in a landfill. Windows provide daylight to 98% of the building, reducing the need for lighting. Ultra-violet lights are used in conjunction with a CO2 water treatment system to reduce the need for chemicals. A solar-powered system heats up water for internal use.
