Join I2SL New England on Thursday, August 22nd for a tour and presentation of the recently completed Roux Center for the Environment at Bowdoin College from 5:30pm-8pm. The Roux Center is a 29,000 SqFt, LEED® Platinum certified building that will also act as a teaching lab of sustainable and innovative construction technologies. Bowdoin College has been a leader in environmental sciences and has embraced an interdisciplinary approach to academics for decades. For the Roux Center, they requested the greenest and most advanced academic building to date. One that would expand this field of study and encourage a new level of teamwork and creativity. The Roux Center not only consolidates various departments into one location but organizes them into classroom and research facilities that support their individual pursuits while opening them to more spontaneous interactions, cross-discipline. The sustainable elements include thermally modified wood siding, filtered fume hoods, a 2,800 SqFt rooftop garden, 2,000 gallon water reclamation, rooftop PV array and other innovative strategies to achieve 85 credits on LEED NC v3 and become Platinum certified.
