Bucknell University will begin construction in spring of 2018 on the $38 million Academic East facility in Lewisburg, Pa. Designed by Stantec, the 78,000-sf project will provide four classrooms and 30 offices that will be shared by the College of Engineering and the Department of Education. The facility will also house over 25 engineering labs to accommodate collaborative research on materials science, fluid mechanics, food science, and sustainable transportation to enable the development of technologies for the optimization of human health. Completion is expected in fall of 2019. LEED Gold sustainable design certification will be sought for the project, which will feature sophisticated building systems, two internal green walls, two green roofs, and a three-story atrium providing natural ventilation.
