Does the institution's physical campus plan include sustainability at a high level?:
A brief description of how the physical campus plan or amendment includes sustainability:
The physical campus plan of Bridgewater College is reflective of three basic principles: simplicity, space and sustainability. Therefore, the suggested action items that we developed through this planning process are organized according to these principles.
The campus has a straight-forward organization to it, along with a consistent style of architecture that lends to an aesthetic appearance. This plan respects that structure and strives to “keep it simple” and uncomplicated in its recommendations. The goal is to build upon what is good on campus in a cohesive and affordable manner that strengthens the overall character of the College.
The goal of this principle is to create a hierarchy of outdoor spaces that strengthen the fabric of the campus, enhance the opportunity for social interaction and add to the character of Bridgewater College. This principle includes action items that will help to better define and bring energy to existing spaces as well as outline opportunities for new outdoor rooms on campus.
In today’s world we are more cognizant than ever before of the limited supply of natural resources and the human impact on our environment. The goal of this principle is to promote environmental stewardship and sustainability in an aesthetically
and programmatic manner. This plan addresses sustainability in the action items and planning for the exterior spaces of campus, in proposed and existing features, as well as the perpetual maintenance of those spaces.
