A Sustainable Building

The Southampton Library is an LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold Certified building. It received high credits in six categories to achieve its Gold rating: Sustainable Site, Water Efficiency, Energy and Atmosphere, Materials and Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality, and Innovation in Design.

Designed by Mitchell/Giurgola Architects, LLC and engineered by Loring Consulting Engineers, the Southampton Library is an amazing example of green design.

  • At least 35% of the electricity used comes from renewable sources instead of fossil fuels.
  • Daylight harvesting systems are used to reduce artificial lighting. Skylights maximize natural lighting, light fixtures respond to natural light, and lights automatically turn on and off when someone enters a room.
  • The library is designed with ground source heat pumps (GSHP), meaning the Library's central heating and cooling system transfers heat to or from the ground. The heat recovery ventilators which reduce the heating and cooling requirements for the building are designed to significantly reduce the carbon footprint on the environment.
  • A storm water reclamation system is used to collect water for non-potable uses such as flushing toilets and urinals. Rainwater is used to flush waste!

Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is a non-profit organization that promotes the responsible management of the world's forests. All wood based materials in the library, such as the bamboo ceiling, meet FSC certification, even the furnishings: tables, chairs, cushions, and rugs. The building's materials have been extracted, harvested, recovered, or manufactured within 500 miles of Stony Brook Southampton. These materials include the wood products, metal and acoustical panel ceilings, gyp board, insulation, and the cold formed metal framing. 

The Greenguard Environmental Institute is an independent organization that aims to protect human health and improve quality of life by enhancing indoor air quality and reducing exposure to chemicals and other pollutants. The building uses extensive recycled materials and low emitting materials that are Greenguard Environmental Institute certified.
