The UNO Charter Schools’ Soccer Academy was featured in the article “The Story of Chicago’s Soccer Academy” published by Green Building + Design magazine in its July / August / September 2012 issue. The article discusses UNO’s initial goals for the project, the Design-Build approach executed by Ghafari, as well as the facility’s sustainable features, including the extensive environmental remediation before construction, reuse of concrete onsite, bicycle storage, 25 percent reduction in site runoff, and green roof, among others.
