LEED / Environmental Impact

Mahogany Hall is LEED Platinum certified under the LEED-Building Design and Construction rating system, formerly known as New Construction and Major Renovations. Specifically, Tercero Phase 3, which includes Mahogany Hall, earned Group Certification, meaning all seven Phase 3 buildings collectively earned one certification.

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. Sustaibale features of Mahogany Hall include:

  • A condensing economizer uses energy derived from waste water vapor to provide heat and hot water for the buildings, saving hundreds of thousands of therms of natural gas.
  • The buildings exceed the state's energy efficiency requirements by more than 48 percent.
  • Indoor water usage requirements reduced 30%.
  • Outdoor water usage (landscaping) requires 50% less than the baseline.
  • All buildings are individually metered for water use and all energy systems.
  • 95 percent of construction waste from the building project was diverted from the landfill.
  • Building materials are made from a minimum of 10% recycled content (based on cost).
  • 10% of building materials are extracted or manufactured within 500 miles of the project site (based on cost).
  • Low-emitting materials were selected for adhesives, sealants, paints, coatings, flooring systems, composite wood and agrifiber products.

Building Namesake

Mountain mahoganyMahogany
Cercocarpus betuloides, mountain mahogany

In the tropics the mahogany is a large tree known for its beauty, durability and color. In California this beautiful medium-sized evergreen shrub lives primarily in California’s coastal foothills. It’s loved by native bees while flowering, birds while seeding, and humans year-round. The curly tails of the seeds make it look as though it’s clouded in smoke. Beautiful and tough, mahogany leaves provide a nice shelter to many members of the animal kingdom. The UC Davis Arboretum uses mahoganies throughout its landscape; they thrive in tough soils and use very little water. For more information visit the UC Davis Arboretum gardens webpage.
