Sustainability at NSCC
Zero Net Energy Building
NSCC's state-of-the-art Health Professions & Student Services Building, the Commonwealth's first state-owned Zero Net Energy building, demonstrates on multiple levels NSCC's commitment to sustainability. The facility is a green building prototype that meets LEED Gold certification requirements.
The college broke ground on the building in November of 2009, hoping to lead the way to a cleaner future. Completed in October, 2011, the Health Professions & Student Services Building covers 58,000 square feet; consolidating all the college's health programs as well as student and administrative support services, offering a welcoming gateway for new and returning students. Its three stories contain five general academic instruction spaces, as well as nursing, physical and occupational therapy, radiology, respiratory and surgical care, and animal sciences classrooms.
