H2M was commissioned by the Sayville Library to provide professional architecture and engineering services for the development of a new 42,000 square foot library. For this project, H2M partnered with local LPA Architects to develop the design and gain the approval of the community through a successful bond referendum. Further, the Sayville Library Board recognized this project as an opportunity to demonstrate environmental responsibility to the community and to set an example for the children of Sayville and West Sayville by implementing many sustainable design features.

Some of the systems and sustainable features implemented include: a geothermal heating/cooling system; photovoltaic electric system; reduced water usage; indoor air quality (VOC free paints, Green Label carpets, formaldehyde-free wood, Green building insulation, CO2 monitoring systems); adequate building ventilation; developed daylight and views; and the use of regional/local materials.
