At 4% of campus floor space and 10% of campus energy use, the University of British Columbia's (UBC) LEED® Gold Life Science Centre represents a large proportion of overall energy use on campus. Starting in 2012 UBC's energy conservation team began a systematic process of low cost optimizations, waste heat recovery, and optimizing building air changes which have led to 35% reduction in building energy use.
