In collaboration with Mack Scogin Merrill Elam Architects, Atelier Ten tested, recommended, and implemented green design building strategies for the LEED Gold Health Center at Yale University. The new health services center includes a state-of-the art health care practice facilities, laboratories, and other medical support spaces to foster operational efficiencies and continued growth.
Atelier Ten supported the use of the Green Guide for Health Care program to steer design decisions and operational policies. Green roof, daylit atrium, low-VOC furniture and finishes, outdoor places of respite, and a green housekeeping plan are some measures Atelier Ten analyzed for environmental performance and maintainability. Non-toxic finishes and building materials such as paint, composite wood and adhesives are used exclusively throughout the interior. To ensure optimal indoor air quality, the building is served by a filtered 100% fresh air ventilation system that maintains high air quality in all spaces.
Atelier Ten New York provided Environmental Design, Energy Analysis, and LEED Administration services. The team included Director, Nico Kienzl and Associate Director, Shanta Tucker.
