RR|A has just completed the green restoration of an historic building creating a new 12,000 SF headquarters for the Coalition for Buzzards Bay with offices, library, meeting room, and a large scale model of Buzzards Bay. The project, located in the New Bedford Whaling National Historic Park, complies with National Park Service guidelines and qualified for preservation grants from the Massachusetts Historic Commission. Among the building’s many green design features are a high performance envelope, air coupled heat pump HVAC system, and vegetated roof and solar PV array.
