Project Narrative:
Hillside Hall combines two stormwater rain gardens and bioretention areas with the use of pervious pavers within the student courtyards. The new dormitory replaces antiquated student housing which was demolished for this project.  Steep slopes and subsurface boulders made for a challenging site. All uphill water is captured in a series of rain gardens that collect and filter water through a sequence of above ground water retention basins. Permeable pavers and extensive new site plantings were also used to retain and filters storm water before it eventually enters White Horn Brook to the west of the campus.This LEED (silver) project incorporates energy conservation features. Sixty-four solar panels provide hot water for the facility. Sun shading fixtures and window vents keep the rooms comfortable while still allowing in generous amounts of light.
