    Lehman College: Advancing the Sciences and Sustainability

    Lehman College has outlined a series of short, intermediate, and long-term Sustainability Goals that address the following topics:

    • Energy
    • Water
    • Transportation
    • Education & Outreach
    • Nutrition
    • Procurement
    • Recycling

    In tandem with their stated goals, Leham College will soon finish construction on the first phase of its new science campus. This new 69,000 square foot science building designed by Perkins+Will represents the first LEED building in the CUNY system – it is expected to achieve LEED New Construction Gold from the United States Green Building Council – and is the first groundbreaking in CUNY’s Decade of Science initiative. The building courtyard will feature an urban constructed wetland consisting of native grasses and naturally occurring microbes that will clean stormwater and greywater for reuse in toilet flushing and maintenance/cleaning. Faculty and students will able to use this wetland for science and ecology experiments and the building will also feature various displays to help people visualize the different ecological and sustainability-oriented processes happening throughout the science campus.  The campus benefits from a number of additional sustainable features, such as:

    • High-efficiency laboratory fume hoods
    • Occupancy sensors
    • An intelligent building management system
    • Radiant floor heating and efficient cellular acrylic glazing in the rooftop greenhouse
    • Native grasses and permeable hardscapes
    • A high-reflectivity “cool roof”
    • Solar hot water panels to convert sunlight to energy
    • Irrigation-free landscaping
    • An aggressive storm and greywater management system and provisions for future blackwater treatment
    • Usage of durable, healthy materials
    • Operable windows and individual thermostatic controls in faculty offices
    • A green cleaning program
    • Maximized daylight and views
