A brief description of how the institution ensures compliance with green building design and construction guidelines and policies:

The Baker Laboratory rehabilitation was completed in May 2008. It is registered for LEED Silver certification. Green innovations used in the project include extensive use of electronic lighting controls and occupancy sensors in the rooms and a sophisticated building management system. This digital control system regulates the air handling and exhaust systems. Baker also features a 23 kw (kilowatt) photovoltaic system, which provides window shading to the south side of the building. The building extensively utilizes recycled building materials, maximizes the use of natural lighting and recovers storm water from the roof for gray water applications. Four 1,000-gallon storage tanks have been installed in the basement of Baker Lab to collect rainwater from the roof. The water will be used in the building's cooling towers.
