TOMS RIVER, NJ-Ocean County College’s John C. Bartlett Jr. Hall, a social science building designed by Hasbrouck Heights-based DMR Architects, has received the USBGC’s LEED Silver certification. This project marks the third by DMR to receive LEED certification and the firm’s second Silver certification.

LEED certification of Ocean County College’s John C. Bartlett Jr. Hall was based on a number of green design and construction features that positively impact the project and the broader community, says DMR. These features include: alternative transportation; heat island roof; no potable water irrigation; 40.1% water use reduction; Energy Star-rated light fixtures; high efficiency windows; sun shades; 83% construction waste management; 23% recycled content in building materials; 32% local and regional building materials; and low to no VOC in sealants, adhesives, paint and carpet.

The $12 million, 30,000-square-foot facility features classroom space, computer labs, faculty offices, student and staff lounges, storage areas and a conference room. According to DMR, Ocean County College’s continued surge in enrollment necessitated the new building. Enrollment numbers have increased an average of 7% annually. Currently, more than 9,000 students attend the school.
