As part of the environmentally friendly construction of East Hall (you may remember I wrote about how the construction team is striving to have the building meet the requirements for LEED silver certification), the building has a live, green roof. Members of the WPI community planted the plants that will grow atop the roof several months ago, and the installation of the green roofâ€”a donation to the university from alumna and trustee Judy Nitsch ’75 and her husbandâ€”took place yesterday morning. The building is looking great, below are a few photos I took of the exterior last week. Only a few weeks until it opens and the students move in! You can read more about the green roof installation in the press release on the WPI Web site.
