GBBN is working with Tree Pittsburgh to develop the design for their riverfront campus above the Allegheny River, on the site of a former steel mill. The campus will facilitate a multiplicity of functions. The nurturing of trees for planting throughout the city and the education of the community to value environmental resources is central to the organization’s mission. Greenhouses and hoophouses, along with utility facilities are planned adjacent to a structure that will house educational programs, revenue generating events, and the organization’s offices. Sustainable design elements include rainwater collection, the utilization of renewable energy sources, and modular prefabricated construction.
