The Putney School Field House is a sustainably-designed educational facility, which received a LEED Gold certification. The courtyard connects the existing Student Union building with the Field House and provides a much needed central social space with inviting gardens. Moreover, the courtyard contributes to the LEED Gold certification by providing a permeable paver surface that mitigates stormwater runoff and Vermont native shade trees which will help to cool the building and courtyard. Permeable pavers significantly reduce stormwater and associated contaminant runoff by allowing infiltration of rain into the subsurface and, ultimately, the water table.
