Massachusetts Maritime Academy: Library Modernization

Cape Cod Community College’s Lyndon P. Lorusso Applied Technology Building is the first LEED-certified building sponsored by the Massachusetts Division of Capital Asset Management (DCAM). Low toxicity and recycled construction materials were used that minimized waste, and the LEED Gold–certified three-story building boasts photovoltaic solar panels, permeable paving, a grey-water recovery system and building system monitors tied to the college’s facility management curriculum. The space, designed by DiMella Shaffer, includes six computer lab classrooms, one open lab, a GIS lab, nine offices, two meeting rooms, and the IT department.

“This highly successful project, with enormous community and statewide impact, has become a showpiece for the college, DCAM, and all partners involved,” said Kathleen Schatzberg, president of Cape Cod Community College.

This is a Division of Capital Asset Management (DCAM) project.
