Florida State University dedicated the $65 million Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Science building in February of 2020 in Tallahassee. Designed by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson to foster interdisciplinary collaboration, the eight-story, 130,500-sf facility collocates departmental space previously scattered in eight disparate locations. The building provides 23 research labs, eight teaching labs, a 100-seat active-learning classroom, a 280-seat auditorium, a meteorology broadcasting studio, a seismometer suite, student lounges, and a rooftop terrace. The structure incorporates advanced infrastructure including a centralized building automation system, lighting control technologies, energy recovery units, and chilled beams. The project team included Ajax Building Corporation and H2Engineering. Ground was broken on the facility in October of 2016.
