NESEA Pro Tour, 2 Living Building Challenge Projects at Hampshire College in Amherst: Sept 18 1-5:30pm

  • 18 Sep 2015
Event Description

Join NESEA and Wright Builders, Inc. on a Pro Tour of two projects under construction on the Hampshire College campus in Amherst, MA, designed to meet the rigorous standards of the Living Building Challenge (LBC). There are currently only eight certified LBC projects in the world.

The 17,000 square-foot R.W. Kern Center will serve as the point of entry for prospective students and families into the Hampshire community; and the location of the admissions financial aid and new student programs offices.

The new 9,000 square-foot Hitchcock Center for the Environment will be New England's first public environmental education center to meet the LBC (version 2.1). The building will more than double the Center’s capacity to host programs for all ages, while also being a one-of-a-kind teaching tool.
