The R.W. Kern Center

The R.W. Kern Center is a living symbol of Hampshire’s values in practice and ideas in action. Our first major new building in three decades, it was built with the goal of certification under the world’s most advanced green building standard, the Living Building Challenge: generating its own electricity, collecting its own water, and built avoiding toxic “red list” chemicals using materials mainly from local and regional sources. The 17,000-sq-ft center is a major piece of Hampshire’s broad sustainability initiative to make campus operations carbon neutral, including a plan to go 100 percent solar for campus electricity this year. This multifunctional building also serves as a living laboratory, where students and the public study its systems and performance, tied to measures for sustainability.
