Having been in operation for a few years, the Bronx Community College (BCC) Center for Sustainable Energy, in cooperation with the City University of New York (CUNY) had grown into the need for dedicated office and classroom space.  As a part of a de facto design-build team, JFS Engineering will provide site design expertise in support of this high-profile project.  A water balance for the site will guide the landscape architect and MEP engineer to minimize irrigation water needs as well as harvest rainwater for non-potable uses at the site.  This project may also be a pilot study for harvesting roof runoff for toilet flush within the building, a technology that could reduce potable “city” water use by up to fifty percent for the academic building. The project is on-going.
