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.

 The new Miller Hall, which architecturally melds seamlessly into the campus, technically heralds the future with its efficient, environmentally conscious, and sophisticated features.

 It boasts 160,000 square feet of space for instruction, student activity, faculty offices, visiting scholars, and research. Miller Hall’s sustainability features include:

  • Lighting that’s automatically controlled to shut off when not in use.
  • Meters that track all energy usage and payment accountability.
  • 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.
  • Local slate and brick.
  • Bike racks, bus route, locker rooms, and shower facilities that encourage alternative transportation for students.
