David Rockefeller Creative Arts Center Opens
Housed in the Orangerie at The Pocantico Center, the new arts center provides a flexible facility for performance events, exhibitions, and education. Key elements of the renovation include the introduction of air conditioning and an extensive photovoltaic array and air-cooled heat pump/Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) system. The VRF systems provide low cost environmental control, while an underground duct network provides quiet, uniform distribution of air. The project anticipates LEED Platinum and Net Zero Energy certifications.
