Going Green at St. Marys College


Goodpaster Hall, the first green building at St. Mary's College
of Maryland.
Goodpaster Hall, the first green building at St. Mary’s College of Maryland, opened its doors as a new state-of-the-art science facility early this year. SmithGroup is the architect and engineer for the $27.5 million building, which is targeting a Gold rating for Leadership in Environmental Engineering and Design (LEED) from the U.S. Green Building Council. A variety of learning opportunities are created inside and out, including an enclosed entry courtyard that gathers seating and interaction areas around a stormwater fountain connected to a bio-retention garden on axis with views of the St. Mary’s River beyond.
