The project is comprised of five buildings on a 500-acre site in Claverack, New York. The architects designed the campus with a zero-carbon footprint, and all buildings are designed using sustainable materials and state-of-the-art green technologies to minimize energy use.
The area where the buildings were sited had been a brownfield site, used as a rock quarry, and qualified as a Brownfield site. The project included mitigating the quarry area, which has been covered with organic soil, and planted with meadows.
