“The Building of Science Hall” Photos

Lehman College Science Hall is as green as it gets. The new facility on campus earned a LEED Platinum certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, the first City University of New York (CUNY) building to be awarded the highest green building ranking. It earned platinum status for an array of environmentally sustainable technologies, such as a rainwater/greywater system to clean and recirculate water for use in restroom flushing fixtures and rooftop solar panels to heat the building’s water. It is also equipped with a rooftop teaching and research greenhouse. The state-of-the-art facility was designed by architectural firm Perkins+Will and built by the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY).

Construction was documented starting from August 5, 2010.
