Sustainable Design


From local, Forest Stewardship Council certified wood in Bicentennial Hall to the green roof at Atwater Dinning Hall, Middlebury exemplifies sustainable design. The next time you walk across campus or into your favorite building, take a closer look because energy efficient designs, innovative use and reuse of materials, and sustainably harvested wood can be found all over campus. We’ve recycled whole buildings, installed lights that dim as the sunlight brightens, and in 2008 the Franklin Environmental Center at Hillcrest became the first LEED Platinum building in Vermont!
