The Environmental Education Center at Reinstein Woods was designed and constructed to be a "green" building.
Clearing of the site began in December of 2005.
The building foundation was poured in March of 2006. The weather was rainy, but warm for Buffalo, so construction continued without any major complications.
Concrete radiant floors were installed in the classrooms before framing of the building began.
A variety of environmentally friendly wood products were used in the construction of the building.
Ample windows provide the building with natural light in 75% of its spaces.
Environmentally friendly "green" polyiso roof insulation was installed.
Green building technologies help conserve energy in building operations.
Furniture and flooring inside the Education Center is made from recyled materials.
Visitors can learn about (and touch) the materials used to construct the "green" Environnmental Education Center at Reinstein Woods.
Opened to the public in April, 2007, the Environmental Education Center at Reinstein Woods is a state of the art Earth-Friendly Building.
