Serving almost one in ten Staten Island families each year, SIMHS aims to not only design a place where children and families will feel a sense of belonging, but also to renovate responsibly with an eye on helping to safeguard Staten Island's future through green design.
In addition, SIMHS plans to seek LEED certification (a national green building industry standard) and, if awarded, the building would be one of the few LEED-certified buildings in the city.
As the project has progressed, SIMHS has adjusted its plans to stay within its budget, working with LEED consultants and engineers to find a happy medium between cost and environmental considerations.
