ECOLOGICAL RENOVATIONS
Bulfinch Hall is one of Phillips Academy’s oldest and most beloved buildings. In 2012, the building was given an upgrade, including a green roof on a new academic wing with a modern aesthetic. 

Recover installed a 1,700-square-foot ZinCo green roof system with sedum plugs that will fill out over time to cover the entire roof. Riverstone sourced from the Mohawk River Valley in upstate New York creates a vegetation-free zone around the perimeter. The new roof fits in with the school's many sustainable endeavors; from the green roof, one can see the flowing grasses of a center green that has been turned into a meadow ecosystem.
