Baker Laboratory

ESF completed a $37 million rehabilitation project of Baker Laboratory in 2008. Baker is home to the Department of Sustainable Construction Management and Engineering and the Department of Environmental Resources Engineering, and the Academic Computing Center.

The project added three high-tech lecture halls and six new computer labs, and used the latest in green construction practices.

Green innovations used in the project include extensive use of electronic lighting controls and occupancy sensors in the rooms and a sophisticated building management system. This digital control system regulates the air handling and exhaust systems. Baker also features a 23 kw (kilowatt) photovoltaic system, which provides window shading to the south side of the building. The building extensively utilizes recycled building materials, maximizes the use of natural lighting and recovers storm water from the roof for gray water applications. Four 1,000-gallon storage tanks have been installed in the basement of Baker Lab to collect rainwater from the roof. The water will be used in the building's cooling towers.

The College is applying for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification for the building as a LEED Silver rehabilitation.

Originally dedicated in 1957, the building honors Hugh P. Baker, a dynamic leader and first dean of the College.
