First building, public or private, in Orange County to be awarded LEED Gold Certification
Holt Construction served as the Construction Manager for Kaplan Hall, located on the SUNY Orange’s Newburgh, NY campus, which became the first building–public or private–in Orange County to be awarded.
LEED Gold Certification by the United States Green Building Council in 2013.
The 97,000 SF three-story Science & Technology building houses an array of classrooms and science laboratories, as well as a two-story library, a one-stop center for all student services, a cybercafe where students can mingle, and office space for faculty members and administrators.
Highly efficient HVAC systems, LED lighting, a roof mounted solar PV array, along with a 15,000-gallon cistern that is used to capture the roof rainwater and irrigate the vegetative rooftop of the underground parking garage were all features of the project scope.
