This report presents the design of the display boards that will be installed in the new SUB. The design is separated into three different parts. The LED energy data display system is a simple system that shows the energy usage of the new SUB; this system will compare and express the data in a way so that it has maximum impact on the SUB users’ awareness of sustainability. The choice of televisions compares three different types television: LCD, LED, and plasma; the comparison judges different aspects of a television including contrast, colour, motion, viewing angle, and pricing. The content of the televisions suggests the programs that are going to be played on the televisions in the new SUB: a virtual tour, sustainability tip of the week, and tips for special events or holidays. Each section of this report is evaluated using the triple-­‐bottom – line assessment, which includes the evaluation of social, environmental,and economical aspects.
