The three-story, 39,000-square-foot Rubenstein School of Natural Resources building was completely renovated to incorporate green features such as a high-performance building envelope and windows, natural lighting and ventilation, water conservation, low-flow and waterless toilets, sensing faucets, energy-efficient lighting and recycled and renewable building materials. A 2,300-square-foot addition incorporated a solarium and Eco-machine.
Over 65% of all wood for the project came from FSC-certified vendors and the wood used for the millwork was harvested from UVM’s research forest. Approximately 1,220 tons of construction waste was diverted from the landfill.
