Via the School of Forestry: “Kroon Hall will be Yale’s greenest building and a symbol of the School’s ideals and values in built form. To create this inspiration and instructional model of sustainable design, F&ES brought together the some of the world’s leading architects and engineers: Hopkins Architects, Centerbrook Architects and Planners, ARUP, aetelier ten, and Olin Partnership. The building is currently on a path to go beyond the “Platinum” rating given by U.S. Green Building Council through their Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program. Kroon will set a new standard for sustainable design.”

Check out floor plans of the new building here and read more on the Yale facilities website here.
