Building green means considering both the environmental impact of construction materials as well as the physiological health of the building's occupants. The Cowichan Campus is designed to supply clean air, circulated at comfortable temperatures, throughout the occupied areas. Skylights and interior windows ensure that occupants have access to natural light and all perimeter spaces have operable windows. The carpets, paints and adhesives used in construction were classified as low-emitting materials, minimizing the odours released into the air.
