Project Description

Langdon Woods at Plymouth State University is the first Residence Hall in New Hampshire to receive LEED Certification at the Gold level. The building emphasizes state of the art strategies for sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality.

Langdon Woods is 58% more energy efficient than a conventional building of this size, saving the university nearly $230,000 a year. The building features operable windows (large windows provide day-lighting and views to 90% of living spaces) and individual airflow, with thermally-powered VAV system provided by Acutherm. The Therma-Fuser™ DDC Interoperable Diffusers meet the set comfort requirement of each space automatically and eliminate over heating and over cooling.
