Weatherhead Hall was distinguished with a Society for College and University Planning Excellence in Architecture for a New Building Honor Award this past summer. Tulane University and the design team of Hanbury Evans Wright Vlattas + Company and John C. Williams Architects were recognized at SCUP’s annual 2013 conference. The jury praised the way the spaces, surfaces and details all synthesized to encourage student interaction within the residence hall. Sustainability was another emphasis in the design of the building, which is certified LEED Gold by the U.S. Green Building Council.

AIA New Orleans granted the Hertz Center a 2013 Design Merit Award at its annual Design Awards ceremony in March. The new practice facility for Men’s and Woman’s Basketball and Women’s Volleyball was designed by Gould Evans Associates and Lee Ledbetter and Associates. The jury appreciated the project's handling of scale with respect to the double court gymnasium and the transparency of the interior spaces. In keeping with the university’s commitment to green building design, The Hertz Center is certified LEED Gold by the U.S. Green Building Council.

Construction continues on Zimple House with the concrete structure rising through Fall 2013. Zimple House will be the third residence hall following the residential college model with Wall Residential College and Weatherhead Hall preceding it.  Zimple House is anticipated to open in time for Move-In of the Fall 2014 semester.

The renovation of Dinwiddie is Tulane's first LEED Gold certified construction project. Reusing an existing building--rather than building new--recycling building materials, specifying local and regional materials, building in energy and water efficiency and building commissioning, and maximizing daylighting while preventing solar heat gain are just a few of the "green" features of the renovation project.
