Did you know?

* By using native plants in conjunction with highly efficient landscape irrigation systems, Deloitte University (DU) anticipates a 50 percent reduction in water usage.

* DU's two-mile jogging trail is made out of recycled crushed concrete.

* Sensors determine when a room is occupied, automatically turning on or off the lights and dramatically reducing the use of energy to light unoccupied rooms.

About DU
Located in Westlake, TX, DU is more than a building. It’s a bold commitment to our people and, ultimately, to our clients – who will be better served by the transformative learning and leadership development that occurs on the 700,000+ square foot campus.

Member of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited Sustainable construction 20% 20% Recycled content Regionally extracted, processed and manufactured* Grounds Greenscaping with native plants* and a highly efficient landscape irrigation system *Native plants, naturally suited for the harsh Texas climate, are drought tolerant and disease resistant, allowing them to thrive without special attention. Recycled trail The two- mile jogging trail is made out of recycled crushed concrete. Open space* *Provides a habitat for local vegetation and wildlife, diminishes heat that emanates from concrete and helps purify storm water run-off. Reduction in water usage 50% *Promoting local business, diminishing the amount of fuel used for shipping and decreasing emissions. Water story The pond acts as a temporary storage tank for rainwater collected from the roof and surrounding hillside. Condensation that has been captured from in-building mechanical systems also supplies the pond. Water from this pond is used for landscape irrigation, reducing the need for municipal water supplies. Natural filtration systems in the parking areas and near the road capture run-off and filter contaminants, protecting the safety of our water. Reclaimed wood The exterior of The Barn is clad with reclaimed wood salvaged from large warehouses and buildings. Rainwater harvesting* DU collects rainwater run-off from building roofs and other impervious surfaces. *Reduces the amount of water flooding into creeks. It also reduces municipal water necessary for irrigating the landscaping. Occupancy sensors Sensors determine when a room is occupied, automatically turning on or off the lights and drastically reducing the use of energy to light unoccupied rooms. High-efficiency plumbing Plumbing fixtures are expected to reduce annual water consumption by more than 30%. High-efficiency glass The high-performance glass used throughout DU has energy efficient coatings that block UV rays and reduce heat transfer into the building. *Reducing energy consumption of artificial lighting. The Barn Rec Fields 50% Waste was recycled Materials used Heat island effect DU’s parking areas have been minimized and distributed to reduce concrete paving heat concentration, which causes higher than normal temperatures. Green parking DU encourages the use of carpooling, alternative fuel and hybrid technology by providing preferred parking for those vehicles. Pond *Eco-education signs were made from wood salvaged from the scrap pile during the construction of The Barn, saving more than 30 linear feet of wood from becoming refuse. 90% Views to natural light* 30 linear feet Salvaged signage* Recycling Recycling receptacles throughout the campus reduce the amount of debris filling our landfills. D Fit The Market Lobby Amphitheatre Guest Services The Lab Grand Ballroom Ballroom Private dining Toilet fixtures consume 20% less water than the industry standard. High-efficiency faucets are expected to reduce annual water consumption by 53,000 gallons. Urinals are designed to consume 50% less water than conventional urinals. High albedo roofing High albedo roofing is highly reflective, absorbing less solar energy, reducing surface temperature and decreasing heat transfer into the building. Main building Water heaters By generating hot water at the point of use, DU reduces water consumption and distribution losses. Vestibules Vestibuled entrances prevent the intrusion of exterior air into the interior of the building, which reduces the impact of the outdoor temperature by minimizing the loss of air made cool by air conditioners. HVAC HVAC system Heat pipe technology reduces energy consumption, improves temperature control and reduces humidity. Building automation The main facility’s building automation system optimizes energy performance by utilizing digital thermostats and other devices to control and deliver air conditioning and lighting efficiently.
