A brief description of the institution’s green infrastructure and LID practices:
There are vegetative roofs on five different buildings on campus.
Since the College has adopted a minimum LEED Silver or equivalent construction/major renovation policy, all new projects will incorporate stormwater management practices.
For the two newest buildings, the Park Center for Business and Sustainable Enterprise and the Peggy R. Williams Center, both LEED-Platinum certified, there are rainwater catchment and reuse systems in place that actively collect rainwater and store it in underground cisterns for use in non-potable water applications (toilet flushing and landscape irrigation). We also used pervious paving near the Williams Center.
