Javits Center to Incorporate Sustainability in Expansion Program


Plans for a 1.2 million square foot expansion of the Javits Center in New York City will include enhanced sustainability.  Innovations will include installation of 3,000 solar panels, conserving storm water with removal of suspended solids and installation of energy-efficient HVAC.  As an experiment, a one-acre roof farm will be created.  It is anticipated to produce 20 tons of produce and fruit each year.


The Javits Center was awarded LEED silver status that will be extended and enhanced through the environmental improvements.
