The Green Building Institute

Green Building Institute

The Green Building Institute at Farmingdale State College will encourage and aid in the design and construction of buildings on Long Island that significantly reduce or eliminate the negative impact of structures on the environment. Specifically, the GBI will (1) make Long Island a center of research and development, job creation, and economic enterprise relating to green buildings; (2) assist Long Island business, municipalities and school systems to reap cost and productivity benefits of producing green buildings; (3) enhance the quality of life through building design; and (4) assist Long Island businesses, municipalities, and school systems in addressing environmental challenges through green building design.

Areas of focus will include alternative energy, alternative construction, architectural design, storm water management, green roofs and green walls, HVAC/energy management, electrical engineering, and testing of "low-emitting" building materials with regard to air quality and industrial hygiene.
