Awards

LEED-Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, 2011

Like most of MIT’s new buildings, Building E62, will be submitted for a LEED rating by the U.S. Green Building Council. The project incorporates a high-performance envelope with operable windows in office areas, (partial) green roof, low-wattage lighting, demand ventilation, occupancy sensor controls, water-based terminal heating and cooling units, and easy access to usable outdoor spaces. The garage, which has facilities for Zip Cars, is also designed to provide a large area of enclosed bicycle parking and support facilities for cyclists. Other bike parking is distributed around the site. Additional information on the sustainable building elements may be found on the Fact Sheet.

Prior to the start of construction, two 40-foot pin oak trees, each weighing 16 tons, were moved from Building E56 to their new home on Carleton Street across from the entrance to MIT Medical. Contractor D. Schumacher moved the trees for about the cost of purchasing a single new tree of the size
