The first phase of our Sustainable Building Project (SBP) is underway, and we wanted to share our progress. For your delectation, we have condensed several days’ work into under a minute’s worth of footage — from the monumental removal of the tennis net(!) to the scaffolding going up and work on the roof getting started.
The scope of the project is big, touching most parts of the structure, from the roof down to the old Library basement. It will result in significantly reduced energy and maintenance costs, and a dry and better-controlled climate for the Residence and Library.
The project would not have been possible without the generosity of the following trusts and foundations, and we gratefully acknowledge their support:
J Paul Getty Jnr Charitable Trust
The Linbury Trust
The Sackler Trust
Garfield Weston Foundation
The Wolfson Foundation
