New England

The I2SL New England Chapter, which formed in December 2013, serves Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, and Connecticut to further I2SL's goals and promote the environmentally responsible design, construction, and operation of resource-conscious facilities dedicated to scientific education, healthcare, and research. Our primary objective is to enable the best possible sustainable design and operational practices through the active participation and ever-growing support of industry professionals within the northeast. I2SL New England draws upon the enormity and diversity of professional, corporate, and institutional expertise within the region.

Past Events

The chapter for its Annual Conference Recap and Poster Session to highlight the topics presented at the 2022 I2SL Annual Conference in Pittsburgh by our local peers. Topics included reducing embodied carbon, improving safety and sustainability, air change rates, commissioning, complying with energy codes, CFD, I2SL Best Practices update, achieving low carbon in cold climates, and addressing carbon in life sciences.

The chapter hosted an in-person tour and discussion of the newly renovated and expanded Science Center at Wellesley College. Having just completed the three-phase, multi-year project that includes a new greenhouse, renovated science labs and a timber frame addition, it was a great opportunity to tour and learn from the design team how they achieved LEED Platinum.

The New England Chapter held its Annual Conference Recap on to highlight the topics presented by New England-based speakers at the conference in Atlanta in 2021. Attendees learned more about and discussed the latest happenings at the forefront of lab sustainability.

The New England Chapter offered a Green Chemistry Teachable event with live Q&A with the speakers. Attendees had the opportunity to chat and network with others, and then viewed three presentations originally given at the 2020 Virtual I2SL Annual Conference.
