Have you ever attended a socially distant groundbreaking? With students away from campus due to COVID-19, a small group of campus leaders and project team members kicked off construction of the Gilder Center. This exciting project is going to transform STEM instruction on the NMH campus for years to come. While complying with all state and local guidelines, our team is in the ground and moving ahead on this fast-track project which has a strong eye towards sustainability.
In partnership with Flansburgh Architects and CSL Consulting, this project will reflect the school's commitment to sustainability by limiting embodied carbons. The Gilder Center was designed to meet sustainability standards addressed in the “2030 Challenge for Embodied Carbon”. The Challenge includes targets for architects and builders regarding greenhouse gas and carbon footprint reduction. While aiming for LEED Certification, this building will be constructed with slate, granite, and cross-laminated timber, aiding in a more sustainable building instead of the typical concrete, metal, and brick.
