Miller Hall, which houses the College of William & Mary’s Mason School of Business, designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects, is a state-of-the-art facility that’s awaiting notification of LEED Gold certification.

 The building embodies the school’s commitment to sustainability and state-of-the-art environmental standards campus-wide. It personifies the college’s entrepreneurial spirit as it inspires leadership and innovation all under one sturdy and environmentally friendly roof.

  • Energy savings that are 20-percent more than ASHRAE Standard 90.1 compliance.
  • Water savings that are 40-percent more than ASHRAE standard compliance.
  • ENERGY STAR equipment and appliances.
  • Rooftop water collection tank for recycling and irrigation purposes.
  • Native and drought-resistant plant species that reduce irrigation requirements.
