The Nest: A Home for Students
Sustainability is central at the AMS Nest. The goal is LEED Platinum Certification (the highest Green Building rating in North America). The AMS Nest incorporates over 100 Social, Environmental, and Economic Studies (SEEDS) student-led sustainability projects.
Sustainability highlights in the building include solar-powered heating and cooling systems, in-vessel composting facilities, storm water management retention, and a roof-top garden.
