Wrigley Hall is home to ASU's School of Sustainability and Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability. The building's most visible features, the roof wind turbines, are a functional reminder that ASU is committed to renewable energy sources. The building was renovated utilizing sustainable products, including high-recycled content materials in the carpet and flooring. Indoor air quality is enhanced through the use of GreenGuard certified furniture and low-emitting paints, coatings and interior signage. Energy use is reduced with the use of natural light and solar tubes, to take advantage of the abundant natural sunlight available, and an occupancy sensor-controlled lighting system. Water efficiency is incorporated throughout the building, including low-water use fixtures inside, and native drought-tolerant plantings outside.
Wrigley Hall earned a Silver rating on the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system.
