Image : New Laboratory Opens at WHOI

WHOI director of construction projects Ernest G. Charette discusses details during a design meeting. To achieve LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification, Charette said, the design team used an integrated approach to sustainable design and a wide range of strategies. For example, more than 80 percent of construction and demolition waste generated during construction has been diverted from landfills, nearly 33 percent of the lab's total materials cost is from recycled content, and more than 20 percent of the material cost was extracted and manufactured locally (within 500 miles), reducing environmental impacts from transportation (Photo by Tom Kleindinst, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
