Our window to avoid the worst impacts of #climatechange is closing. Mithun and leading firms are taking action to decarbonize the built environment. It's time for governments to step up. “Impacts of the climate crisis are already affecting vulnerable communities and ecosystems and the time to act is now,” says Hilary Noll, sustainability integration leader at Mithun. “We pledge to meet the 1.5°C carbon target by incorporating regenerative carbon strategies for all elements of the built environment. This reduction is technically within reach but requires a new era of collaborative design and carbon economics. Members of the building industry have stepped up to address climate—it’s time for governments to do their part to establish clear targets to further advance this work industry-wide.” Join us.

Mass timber roof structures and green roofs at the Princeton Lake Campus Graduate Student Housing bring sustainable performance and biophilic benefits into the daily experience of students and faculty. With a high-performance envelope and building systems, the design is on track to become one of the largest Passive House certified projects in the country. Sustainability synergies unite the Lake Campus development, from rain gardens and green infrastructure to geothermal exchange wells, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, carbon sequestration and low-embodied-carbon materials.
