Ennead Associate Principal, Marissa Sweig Trigger and Senior Associate, Julia Chapman recently lead a workshop on sustainability and resiliency at Facades+, New York City on “Building for the Future at Edelman Fossil Park.”
Opening to the public in 2024, the Jean and Ric Edelman Fossil Park Museum of Rowan University will be a new, world-class museum and fossil dig site and New Jersey’s largest public net zero facility.
Paired with passive sustainable strategies and a geothermal heating and cooling system, the wood and concrete envelope systems contribute to the goal of achieving net zero carbon emissions in the building while integrating the exterior, interior, and structural design. The workshop will explore lessons from the design and construction of wood rainscreen, cast-in-place concrete, and heavy timber systems.
