During Climate Week, Elite Construction, construction manager for the project, is thrilled to be part of history as Governor Kathy Hochul announces the opening of the $8.3 million, 8,000-square-foot, Environmental Education and Resiliency Center at Hempstead Lake State Park. The Center is part of a project to advance the understanding of impacts of climate change, provide a space to foster positive engagement amongst the community, and will serve as an emergency coordination center during disaster response. 

The Center was constructed with key features to reduce environmental impacts including:

  • High performance building envelope and HVAC system. 
  • Robust and sustainable exterior envelope optimized to suit local climate demands.
  • Photovoltaic roof panels, LED lighting with occupancy sensing and daylight harvesting to offset electrical usage.
  • Conscientious siting and glazing to reduce heating and cooling loads.
  • High-efficiency, low/no water plumbing fixtures.
  • Bird friendly window and door glazing.
