Published on November 01, 2006

Bronson strives to create a healthy, healing environment for patients, staff and the community through pollution prevention, energy conservation and sustainable building design. Eighty-nine percent of the materials from the demolition of the north tower were recycled.

Here are some other choices Bronson has made to continue its focus of building green in the new North Pavilion:

    • Flooring made from petroleum-free materials (carpet, rubber)

    • PVC-free products

    • Energy-efficient windows

    • Low-emitting materials like adhesives, sealants, paints, composite woods

    • Using local and regional vendors to decrease transportation impact

    • Energy-efficient infrastructure

    • Healing gardens and natural light

    • Exploring green roof options
