We consistently work towards incorporating energy-saving tactics into the buildings we design. We profile recently-completed or soon-to-be completed projects detailing energy-saving statistics. We are committed to energy efficient spaces and reducing the environmental impact of each building.
This month we're looking at Connecticut College's Science Center at New London Hall, a 43,900 GSF addition and renovation to the oldest building on campus. The completed building will house the Biology, Botany and Computer Science Departments, offering modern facilities for the faculty, staff and students.
