Golisano Institute for Sustainability (GIS)
The Rochester Institute of Technology Golisano Institute for Sustainability is for the newly created sustainability department at RIT. A design-build delivery method expedited the project due to the huge interest in the new sustainable curriculum. Spaces include classrooms, lecture hall, engine dyno, fuel cell test bed, microgrid system, environmental test rooms, decision theater, environmental Chemistry lab, materials science lab, imaging test bed and offices.
Classrooms and labs will be flexible to allow configuration/ use/equipment changes as needed for technology and program advances. A USGBC LEED Platinum certification has been achieved with all submitted 89 points realized.
