Environmental Sustainability meets Large-Scale Construction.
The SUNY Polytechnic Institute’s new Hilltop Residence Hall is a 4-level building that will house over 250 students from the State University of New York. The residence hall will be a zero-net, carbon certified building, meaning that annually, it will use equal to or less than the energy it can produce through renewable resources.
“This project is a bold step for SUNY as the college system continues down the path to reduce its carbon footprint and builds on our Green New Deal initiative to make New York’s electricity 100 percent carbon neutral by 2040 and create a more sustainable, green economy.”
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo
This sustainable and energy-efficient building will include several hotel-style lounge areas, study rooms, kitchens, multi-purpose rooms, game rooms, laundry and storage areas, and more. The outdoor space will include a courtyard, outdoor grills, and a bioretention water tank that removes contaminants from the water, and finally a solar power system to retain power and energy.
The SUNY Poly Residence Hall is not only practical and cost-effective but also supports students to maintain a healthy and comfortable lifestyle in a good learning environment.
