Unity College Residence and Dining Halls Case Study

Through its ongoing engagement with Unity, SMRT has shaped a contemporary-built campus environment that reflects the sustainability ethic of “America’s Environmental College” and supports its growing enrollment. The design team helped Unity step away from fossil fuels by incorporating photovoltaic arrays, a wood pellet boiler and air-to-air heat exchangers. Sourcing materials with low-embodied energy added another level of sustainability to the project. Dining Hall artwork and interior finishes celebrate Unity’s farm-to-table approach.
