Hitchcock Center for the Environment

Location: Amherst, MA

 Structures Workshop just completed the structural design of the  Hitchcock Center  in Amherst, MA meeting 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, spruce decking, exterior northern cedar frames, eastern white pine, etc).  This is one of just a few LBC projects on the East Coast.
