Pratt Institute Myrtle Hall
Cycle provided green design and LEED consulting services through Schematic Design for a new, 120,000 square foot administrative and academic building for the Pratt Institute. The building aspires to a high level of environmental performance, and has been awarded grants by the Kresge Foundation and NYSERDA for pursuing green design.
Cycle led the team to design features of the building including a photovoltaic array, green roofs, landscaping with native plants, on-site stormwater detention systems, and a high performance façade with architectural sunshading. Cycle validated the design features of the building through detailed energy modeling, solar shading analysis. In addition, Cycle provided design criteria for the façade, stormwater detention system, solar electric system, and other components of the project.
The project attained a LEED Gold level of certification from the US Green Building Council and was recognized with several awards.
