Join the Green Infrastructure Network for a tour and presentation at Chatham University’s Eden Hall Campus!
Chatham’s Eden Hall Campus Stormwater Management is the Recipient of the ASCE-Pittsburgh 2015 Sustainability Award. This seminar provides an opportunity for you to see those sustainable facilities. The Eden Hall Campus is situated on 388 acres in Gibsonia, Pennsylvania. Originally a farm and retreat for working women of Pittsburgh, Eden Hall was gifted to Chatham University in 2009 by the Eden Hall Foundation. The 20- to 25-year development plan for the residential campus calls for it to be self-sustaining in every way; housing 1,500 students, achieving zero carbon emissions, producing more energy than it consumes, and managing all stormwater and wastewater on site. At Eden Hall, the campus doesn’t just house classrooms, but is a classroom.
