The National September 11 Memorial and Museum occupies almost half of the 16 acre World Trade Center site in downtown Manhattan. Consisting of a sprawling, treed pavilion, the two iconic waterfalls sited at the original footprints of the Towers, and an eight story deep underground museum; the Memorial is unlike any other constructed site in the world. Designed to achieve LEED Gold certification, the Memorial incorporates sustainability features including reduction in potable water use, increased ventilation, specifications that included low emitting and highly recycled materials, enhanced commissioning and refrigerant management. The project seeks innovation credits to provide 100% shading of non-pervious surface after five years through extensive tree planting and to design the building to educate visitors on the benefits of green buildings through displays and public programs.

As the Head of Sustainability for the Americas region of Lend Lease, James Stawniczy shepherded the sustainability and historic artifacts programs throughout construction. Join the Urban Green Council as he discusses the challenges and achievements of this unprecedented project.
