A special feature of the new building is the campus-wide rain garden. JEMA designed the rain garden to not only mitigate and clean stormwater, but also as a campus amenity. The rain garden features staggered paving that allows students to traverse the area while still maintaining the previous area requirements. Staggered walls act as benches making the whole rain garden a green oasis that extends Ranken's "mall" creating an outdoor destination for staff and students alike.
