Endowment amount is from fiscal year 2018 and includes Amherst College and Folger Library’s investment pool combined.

2/8/19 - gross floor area was originally 179363 gross sq meters pre-new science center. For 17-18 school year we have increased this number by 23,690 m2( 255,000 sq ft) because the new science center was being heating for much of this time. This is relevant to our energy calculations. In future years this number we go down as we took the old science center offline in fall 2018.

Lab space remains the same as there is near equivalent lab space in new science building and that was not operational in the 17-18 school year, which the energy data is reflecting. Will assess in more detail at a later date.
