Law Learning Center UGM
The Law Learning Center is part of the Faculty of Law compound at Gadjah Mada University, a public University in Yogyakarta. The learning center has expanded the University’s law offerings, housing academic and professional activities for undergraduate, graduate, doctoral and professional degree programs. The eight-story building includes classrooms, multipurpose spaces and a moot court room.
The Law Learning Center utilizes resource-efficient design features and technologies to reduce its environmental impact and save on operating costs. LED lighting, reflective paint and solar photovoltaics reduce the building’s energy use, while water-efficient plumbing fixtures and a grey water treatment and recycling system reduce the building’s water use.
The Law Learning Center was built with funds from the Japan International Cooperation Agency’s (JICA) loan for the expansion of Gadjah Mada University’s academic offerings and the sustainable development of its facilities.
The Law Learning Center at Gadjah Mada University has received final EDGE certification from the Green Building Council Indonesia.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reduced window to wall ratio, reflective paint for external walls, external shading devices, solar photovoltaics and energy-saving lighting in internal and external spaces.
Dual-flush water closets, water-efficient urinals and faucets for kitchen sinks, low-flow faucets and a grey water treatment and recycling system.
In-situ reinforced concrete for the floor and roof, clay roofing tiles on steel rafters for the roof, and autoclaved aerated concrete blocks and common brick walls with plaster on both sides for internal walls.
*Part of the energy efficiency percentage may be associated with virtual energy for comfort depending on the presence of heating and cooling systems. Note that virtual energy does not contribute savings to utility bills.
