Sullivan University announced last Monday that it has formally changed the name of the Louisville Technical Institute to the Sullivan College of Technology & Design. To celebrate the change, officials broke ground on a new 12,000 square foot building that is expected to receive LEED Certification for green building.
The new SCTD Building will open in 2010 and serve as a living laboratory to demonstrate the green technologies housed within. Glenn Sullivan, president of the University, describes some of the changes in store:
Other exciting changes at SCTD is the addition of the new HVAC-R (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning-Refrigeration) program which will begin our foray into Green Technology programs. We believe that there is a lot of opportunity in Going Green and our goal is to be a regional leader in providing training for this â€œgreen-collaredâ€ energy management and auditing career field. Also, one of the goals at SCT&D is to expand our current programs and offer more Bachelor’s Degrees. Just last week, we received approval to offer aÂ Bachelor’s in Graphic Design.
Glenn Sullivan recently named to the Kentucky Chapter of the USGBC which oversees the LEED program, so it’s natural that the University should take a lead in sustainability. The new building occupies the former site of LTI and is expected to take about six months for construction. Environmentally friendly building materials will be used to build the structure.
