Case Study 3:

Stony Brook University Simons Center

Stony Brook, New York


The client's desire to pursue LEED certification was two-fold. First, because the building is part of the State University of New York system, it needed to be at least 20% more energy efficient than a baseline comparison and be LEED certified. Secondly, Stony Brook University is one of the greenest colleges in the country, and the Simons Center needed to be exemplary of the type of facility that met—or exceeded—their high standards for sustainability.
