The buildings on Wake Tech's northern campus were all designed to extremely strict environmental standards.

    Ok........and they did this how? "extremely strict environmental standards" doesn't tell us how they restricted this. Please provide more detail!

    The rest of us may want to attempt some of their methods since gas is going up by the minute and so is the temperature outside.
