Central New Mexico Community College
Max Salazar Building Renovation
This 5-story, 120,000 SF facility is a pivotal gateway for students and visitors to CNM's main campus in Albuquerque, New Mexico. One of only ten LEED Platinum Certified commercial buildings in the state, the project's sustainable design features celebrate its location in a high desert climate.
Thoughtful landscape architecture and the use of native, drought-tolerant plants has not only reduced outdoor water usage by 70% but also provides shaded walkways that reduce radiant heat and contribute to lower energy consumption overall. Exemplary energy performance has been achieved through the building's own solar array; submetering of multiple systems, including lighting, HVAC, electric receptacle, and IT loads; LED lighting; and vacancy sensors. Over 60% of the construction waste generated from this renovation has been reused in the building, and 25% of new construction materials contain recycled content.
