Our Next Building, The Imaginarium, is currently under construction! This 9,000 sq ft, will be an Arts & Science Educational Center, a public space to enjoy and learn about art, alternative energy, sustainable practices and environmental stewardship. As a NET Zero Building, we will be creating our own power using various forms of renewable sources including Solar, Wind, Geothermal, People Power (Exercise Equipment) and Tidal Power/Rainwater Harvesting. The rooftop will also have a kitchen to accommodate visitors on both The Imaginarium and Building 1, which will be connected via a rooftop walkway.
This project is part of the Cleaner, Greener Communities program, a major statewide initiative encouraging communities to incorporate sustainability goals and principles into local decision-making, and then form partnerships to transform markets that lead to the reduction of emissions and the generation of economic development benefits. The program, administered by NYSERDA, also empowers communities to take action, providing technical resources and decision-making tools on land use, housing, transportation, energy, economic development and environmental practices, resulting in a more vibrant and prosperous New York State.
