THE GREEN ROOF
To conserve natural resources and encourage sustainability throughout the University of Illinois south campus, a 2,860 square-foot green roof system was developed for the conference center roof, adjoining the I Hotel. This eco-friendly system created additional green space and complements the natural landscaping that has already been implemented in the Research Park. While limiting storm water discharge by over 50%, the green roof system also filters and detoxifies runoff, reducing energy usage by 25% through decreased roof temperatures and removing particulates traveling to the Embarras River.
HYBRID VEHICLES AND TESLA CHARGING STATIONS
Guests at the I Hotel and Illinois Conference Center have access to Charge Point stations located on property available for use by hotel and restaurant patrons. The charging stations will provide a convenient and fast charging solution for EV owners traveling through central Illinois.
