Hitchcock Center's "Living Building"

        

 

 

 

     

 

 

Structures Workshop was engineer of record for the Hitchcock Center in Amherst, MA.  This project is one of a handful in the country that is designed to meet the Living Building Challenge. The project (DesignLab Architects) is aiming to be net zero energy, water independent, using all non-toxic materials  - all locally sourced wood construction - black spruce gluelam beams (NordicLam), spruce decking, local northern cedar frames, local eastern white pine, etc.  This is one of just a few LBC projects on the East Coast.
