Rinker Hall is a leadership facility within the University of Florida’s College of Design and Construction. Accommodating 450 students on 3 levels in 47,270 square feet of space, the building includes a mix of classrooms, teaching labs, construction labs, faculty/administrative offices and student facilities. The high performance design of Rinker Hall has resulted in a building with 57% energy savings, deep daylighting and an exterior wall system carefully designed to balance moisture, thermal loading and daylight. In Rinker there has been a consideration of materials at three scales of design: first, to minimize built solutions while still meeting program, second, to minimize the materiality of those solutions and third, to facilitate disassembly through materials selection, assembly and detailing. (This concept was awarded LEED Innovation Credits).
