Chatham University New Lodge

New 4-story, 49-unit university residence hall with conference & food preparation space

Targeting Passive House, LEED & net zero

Chatham University's new Eden Hall Campus is turning a 388-acre plot of land into Chatham's School of Sustainability and the Environment. It will function as a living and learning laboratory, where the campus just doesn't house classrooms, but is the classroom. Eden Hall Campus will be the first in the world built from the ground up for the study of sustainable living, learning, and development and will be self-sustaining in every way by producing zero carbon emissions and more energy than it consumes. It will serve more than 1,500 students (on-campus and online) with programs in the fields of sustainability, health sciences, business, and more. 

The New Lodge is a residence hall designed to Passive House standards. The project is currently "on the shelf" as other buildings in Phase IA are being constructed.
