McKeown Community Center
The McKeown Center, located on the Flynntown lower campus of Saint. John's University, was dedicated in Fall 2009. It serves as the community center for
Flynntown and houses a recreational area, student lounge, kitchen, study rooms, computer lab and dining area. The Center was designed to promote sustainability.
Low-flow plumbing fixtures and energy efficient lighting and HVAC systems all help to lower the carbon footprint of this building.
LEED Gold Project
A "real time" energy monitor has been installed and will be used by staff to adjust performance and as an educational tool by environmental studies students. Other
sustainable design elements include a rain garden and pervious pavers. LKPB designed this facility to LEED Gold criteria.
