Sustainable Buildings


The Facilities Department strive to implement sustainability into all aspects of campus operations including energy conservation and energy efficiency. Their design and construction strategies focus on ensuring buildings last a minimum of 100 years, maximizing energy efficiency, promoting net zero energy consumption where possible, and utilizing renewable materials with the lowest impact and life cycle cost practicable.

Through simple tasks like replacing old light bulbs with LED light bulbs or more advanced tasks like the replacement of the ventilation system in Clemens Library, the Facilities department is saving the College an estimated $300,000 every year.

If you have  suggestions  regarding how we can continue to work towards achieving our goal of carbon neutrality by 2035, e-mail Judy Purman in the CSB Office of Sustainability.
