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.
