The University of Oregon's Lillis Business Complex (LCB) is a building on the University of Oregon campus in Eugene, Oregon. It is home to the Charles H. Lundquist College of Business and comprises the new main building (called Lillis Hall), completed in 2003, as well as three older buildings, Gilbert Hall, Peterson Hall, and the Chiles Business Center.
The Lillis Business Complex combines 1920s architecture (embodied in the paired Peterson and Gilbert Halls, flanking the main entrance to Lillis) with state-of-the-art facilities and sustainable design. The front of the building (facing 13th street and the Memorial Quadrangle) features photovoltaic cells embedded in the glass, which provide a portion of the building's energy. In addition, the building, classrooms, and offices were oriented so as to maximize the use of natural light, and all rooms are outfitted with the latest sensor technology to minimize energy usage. Sunoptics Prismatic Skylights and Light Control Louvers were utilized to maximize daylighting deep into educational spaces while still providing a control solution to be able to dim or shut off daylight for educational video presentations.
In 2005, the building received the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED-NC Silver designation, ranking it higher than any other business school in the nation. Additionally, it is among the most environmentally conscious buildings on any college campus in the United States. Its amenities include the largest installation of architectural solar glass in the Northwest, which provides much of the building's electrical power, and lighting systems that take advantage of sunlight, turning themselves off when not in use.
As a Member Company of the U.S. Green Building Council, Sunoptics is proud to be a part of the University of Oregon's sustainable building practices and initiatives.
