LEED / Environmental Impact

Student Housing recently renovated Bixby, Gilmore, Malcolm and Ryerson Halls. Primarily a seismic, fire sprinkler and maintenance project, the renovation added many life safety improvements to the residence halls, as well as several interior upgrades and sustainable features. Student Housing is currently reviewing the buildings as potential LEED projects, using the Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance rating system. The LEED green building certification program promotes a whole building sustainability approach by recognizing performance in five areas: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality. Sustainable features in Bixby include:

  • Energy efficiency improvements – lighting
  • UV light reflective window film on south-facing windows
  • Filtered water bottle filling stations
  • Asbestos abatement
  • Replace roofing - reflective roofs
  • Use of sustainable building materials
  • Ability to add solar panels (separate project)

Building Namesake

Fred Hathaway BixbyFred Hathaway Bixby
Born: 1875
Deceased: 1952

Bixby Hall was built in 1960 and is named after Fred Hathaway Bixby (1875-1952). A graduate of UC Berkeley, Mr. Bixby was a rancher and livestock breeder, and established the Bixby Ranch Company in the Long Beach area in 1926. The New York Times wrote in his obituary that he was "one of the west's leading agriculturalists", serving for a time as president of the American and California Cattlemen's Association and the California State Fair. A few years before his death, Mr. Bixby endowed a program with a generous sum to make certain that agricultural graduates from the Davis campus would have an opportunity to go out into the world with practical farm skills as well as knowledge.
