INHABITAT TOUR: NYC’s LEED Platinum Cooper Union Academy
Green roof gardens and terraces provide insulation to the interior spaces of the building while minimizing the “urban heat island” effect so prevalent in Manhattan. They also reduce the flow of storm water runoff and pollutants into city sewers.
Some other eco-friendly features present throughout the building include: radiant ceiling panels, a co-generation plant that transfers excessive heat into electrical energy, recycled and renewable finishes and materials, advanced air quality systems, bicycle storage and parking spaces for low-emission and clean air vehicles, high energy-related systems, and express elevators.
Built to LEED Gold standards, 41 Cooper Square was recently certified as the first LEED Platinum academic building in New York City.
