Sustainable Design

Sustainability is more than a buzz word. Sustainable designs are the future, as they reduce the negative impacts on the environment by using renewable resources, minimize waste, and create healthy, productive environments. At Bancroft we know this is the way of the future and have done a range of sustainable designs for clients.

Part of a Master Plan project at a botanical garden, the Greenhouse Complex aspired to a zero-energy footprint and involved extensive environmental sustainability measures.
This project included a specialized microelectronics lab designed to an ISO 7 level of cleanliness at the pharmaceutical site in Hopewell, NJ.
The Copeland Maritime Center is home to the Tall Ship of Delaware as well as exhibits telling the story of the rich history of the Kalmar Nyckel.
The state-of-the-art Hanby Elementary School and Bush Early Education Center is a 80,000-SF facility, which has the distinction of being Delaware’s first LEED® certified school.
Built to replace an out-dated and undersized research facility, the Life Science Research Facility supports UD's mission of increasing funded research.
The largest school renovation in Delaware state history, Bancroft was successful in retaining and restoring 90% of the original wood trim, plaster ceilings, and terrazzo and oak floors.
Built for LEED Silver Certification, key aspects of the project included the construction of a new entrance, the expansion of the cafeteria, and a new service drive with loading area.
