P.S. 62 in Richmond, Staten Island, will be the subject of a case study and panel discussion co-hosted by the Urban Green Council and the AIA New York Chapter Committee on the Environment. Moderated by Laurie Kerr, a senior policy advisor for New York City's Office of Long Term Planning and Sustainability, the panel will include Bruce Barrett, Vice President for Architecture & Engineering, NYC School Construction Authority; Chris McCready, Director of SOM's Education Lab and P.S. 62's Project Manager; and Rob Diemer, Founding Partner, In Posse. P.S. 62 Richmond will be the first net-zero energy school in New York City and one of the first of its kind worldwide. Currently out to bid, this project will harvest as much energy as it uses on an annual basis from renewable on-site sources. Join this group of experts as they discuss their planning process, integrated design approach, and sustainable strategies for achieving net zero energy use.
