College upgrades and remediates riverfront campus with EPA funding

Metl-Span manufactured and supplied its Architectural Flat insulated metal wall panels in Dove Gray, Light Gray, Arabian Blue, and Chromium Gray.

Goodwin College in Connecticut offers a variety of degrees and certificates that are designed to allow students to meet their goals at an accelerated pace. The college serves approximately 3,000 students, with more than half being first-generation college attendees, and the student body reflects the diversity of the Hartford metropolitan area. At Goodwin they believe everyone should have access to quality education.

Problem

Founded in 1999, the campus and its program and educational offerings expanded over the years and so did its student population. Goodwin College needed to expand its facilities to accommodate this increase and continue to meet a variety of student needs.

Solution

A $600,000 EPA Brownfields Cleanup Funding Award for the property in 2008 allowed the College to remediate brownfields that are now the site of its riverfront college campus. This remediation and re-use of brownfields have positively benefited the economic, educational and environmental conditions of the East Hartford Community. Metl-Span manufactured and supplied its Architectural Flat insulated metal wall panels in Dove Gray, Light Gray, Arabian Blue, and Chromium Gray.

The Architectural Flat panel is ideal for high architectural applications. The panels may be installed either vertically or horizontally for maximum design flexibility. Multiple module widths and joint reveals add to the design variations.

The school building features a full gymnasium, exercise facility, significant cafeteria space and a “green roof.” The new construction building promises one of the most striking waterfront school campuses in Connecticut.
