Dartmouth College began construction in October of 2019 on the $100 million Arthur L. Irving Institute for Energy and Society in Hanover, N.H. Designed by Goody Clancy to promote an integrated approach to problem solving, the 55,000-gsf facility will accommodate programs in engineering, environmental studies, geopolitics, business, and economics. The three-story structure will be physically connected to Murdough Hall by an atrium, creating a natural point of convergence for faculty and students from across campus to collaborate on energy-related projects. The interdisciplinary building will contain maker spaces, learning environments, faculty offices, collaboration spaces, and research and demonstration labs. LEED Platinum sustainable design certification will be sought for the facility, which is being built by Turner Construction. Completion is expected in summer of 2021. The Institute for Energy and Society is part of a $200 million capital program that will include renovated and expanded space for the Department of Computer Science, the Thayer School of Engineering, the Tuck School of Business, and the Magnuson Center for Entrepreneurship.
