The U.S. Green Building Council has given the Mamaroneck Public Library’s renovation-expansion a LEED Gold certification, making it one of the few public buildings in Westchester County with that status.
A LEED Gold status means that the $12 million reworking of the library met a number of environmental and sustainability requirements, including a green roof, sustainable materials and abundant natural light.
The USGBC awarded the library the Gold certification in December.
Other new construction in Westchester County with LEED Gold status includes the Jacob Burns Film Center’s Media Arts Lab in Pleasantville and the Ronald McDonald House at the Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla.
BKSK Architects of New York City designed the library project, which added 13,000 square feet of additional space to the original 1927 Classical Revival structure.
