BROOKLYN CENTER FOR THE URBAN ENVIRONMENT

In keeping with their mission to educate the New York City public on urban environmental issues, the executive director spearheaded the push to make their new headquarters an exemplary LEED gold commercial interior project.  Located in the Gowanus industrial area of Brooklyn, in a 19th century factory building, that is now housing many innovative non-profits. The layout allowed for large gathering public gathering spaces, classrooms, offices, and conference room.  The project highlighted the industrial “bones” of the building, with exposed brick walls, revealing a 100 year old wood floor, and salvaging wood joists for the stair treads.  [16,000 sf : LEED green consultant and project manager]
