Jonathan Noordzy, P.E., QCxP, CxA, EMP, Hanson’s commissioning and energy technical discipline chief, provided information to attendees of U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) Florida’s tour of the University of Florida’s Malachowsky Hall for Data Sciences and Information Systems on Nov. 1.
Jonathan, who works at the Orlando, Florida, regional office, joined Iris Meeker from Walker Architects Inc. and the University of Florida’s Dustin Stephany and James Vignola to lead the tour. Amanda Polematidis, P.E., CxA, LEED AP® BD+C, an associate project manager at Hanson’s Jacksonville, Florida, office, is the chair of the USGBC North Florida Chapter and briefly spoke at the event. She was part of the coordination team for the tour.
Hanson provided commissioning services for the building; a ribbon-cutting was held earlier this month. It has office space for the Department of Computer and Information Science and Engineering, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Florida Institute for Cybersecurity Research and the Warren B. Nelms Institute for the Connected World. A LEED Platinum® certification is being pursued for this facility, and it will be the university’s 100th green building — a record for any public university in the country.
