Name Summary

Infrastructure & Plants 2017-2018

The project is in its final execution phase and consists of infrastructure plants and networks with their associated earthworks, civil and finishing works along with a 400 m2 maintenance quarter. The utilities supplied to the Campus are chilled water from a 2,300 TR  central cooling plant (extendable to 3,700 TR), heating form a 4,400 kW central heating plant (extendable to 7,350 kW), power from a 9 MW central power plant (extendable to 11 MW), irrigation, domestic and soft water as well as fire fighting from a 3,175 M3 central elevated water reservoir all through distribution networks of 2.5 Km long, including a 0.5 Km underground tunnel.

Engineering Labs and Research Center 2016-2017

A new construction (9,637m2) replaced the existing Engineering Laboratories. It is designed to meet the needs of the School of Engineering by proving state-of-the-art, efficient physical facilities to support the school’s evolving academic needs.

Tohme-Rizk Building Renovation 2014-2015

The Tohme-Rizk building successfully obtained the International Finance Corporation’s EDGE (Excellence in Design for Greater Efficiencies) certification (becoming the first EDGE-certified office building in Lebanon). The renovations will result in reductions of 41 percent in energy, 29 percent in water, and 34 percent in materials’ embodied energy compared to local benchmarks. It will also reduce, at no additional capital cost, utility  expenses  for  the building by around US$600 each month, in addition to saving the environment 21 tCO2 per year.
