ST. JOHN PAUL II NEWMAN CENTER
The Planned St. John Paul Newman Center is on track to open in the fall of 2016. It will be a place where students can live in a community supportive of their faith, and where they can spend even their recreation and study time surrounded by a positive, encouraging environment.
The Archdiocese of Omaha is the owner-operator of the 100,000 SF, $13 million student residence center, will include a chapel, apartment-style housing for 164 students, indoor-outdoor fireplace and courtyard, prayer garden, study lounges, a fourth-floor outdoor rooftop deck, social space and a rectory for two priests.
The St. John Paul II Newman Center has been designed with a core principal of being a good steward of God’s resources and gifts. The design strives to respect and conserve our environment, through good fundamentals of design and construction. Some details include:
- A majority of the lighting is LED, reducing energy consumption and maintenance costs.
- Dimming is provided in the resident suites for enhanced occupant comfort and energy savings
- Occupancy sensors are used to foster energy savings when rooms are unoccupied.
- Energy efficient water source heat pump system.
- Low flow plumbing fixtures to reduce water consumption.
- Building management control system which can help reduce energy use.
- Demand controlled ventilation– meaning the building is only bringing in and conditioning the required amount of outdoor air.
Located on the southeast corner of 71st & Pacific Streets provides easy access to bike trails, shopping and entertainment, dining variety, UNO shuttle services and medical facilities.
