The Margaret Murie Building for life sciences sets the stage for a more collaborative approach to teaching and research at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks (UAF). The first new biology building on campus in more than 40 years, it replaces the siloed legacy lab buildings housing one PI for each lab that would be used only 30 percent of the time.
The Energy Biosciences Building at the University of California, Berkeley, is a facility for the Energy Biosciences Institute (EBI), a 10-year, $500 million program created to address challenges in climate change and the rising price and diminishing supplies of carbon-based fossil fuels by applying the advanced knowledge of biological processes, materials, and mechanisms.
The Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM) has completed Phase I of a renovation and expansion project aimed at increasing the size of its entering medical doctor class by 78 percent, from 56 students in 2009 to 100 by 2016. Phase I involved four relatively small projects—all renovations of existing space—that will have a major programmatic impact: the addition of a state-of-the-art animal surgery suite, a graduate teaching laboratory, a renovated library, and a renovated research laboratory that consolidates MSM’s four core biomedical research areas.
Eastern Kentucky University's utility costs have remained stable over the last two years due to the implementation five years ago of an Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC) w
The Mars Center for Science and Technology, Wheaton College’s largest-ever building project, creates a cornerstone of the College’s interdisciplinary curriculum called “Connections,” providing enhanced facilities for scientific research and study, as well as scholarly connections across the disciplines, where scientists and humanists co-teach courses to highlight the unique contributions of each discipline. The building, certified LEED Gold, also fulfills Wheaton’s commitment to sustainability.
The new College of Pharmacy building at the University of Rhode Island allows the College’s scattered facilities to be housed under one roof for the first time.
The 351,0000-gsf Consolidated Forensic Laboratory (CFL) in the District of Columbia serves the Department of Forensic Services, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, and the Department of Public Health. The building rises seven stories above ground; two below-grade levels contain evidence storage, vehicle exam, firing range/bullet recovery, lab/exam areas, BSL-3, autopsy, support lab areas, offices/conference space, and the parking garage.
The 33,000-sf Clara Christie Centre for Mouse Genomics (CCCMG) at the University of Calgary—a centralized facility for the production and breeding of transgenic mice—expands mouse housing, provides procedure spaces for researchers, enables mouse transgenics production, and creates new space to phenotype the transgenic models.
The 282,000-sf, five-story Energy Environment Experiential Learning (EEEL) building at the University of Calgary provides instructional space for expanded programs in energy and environment; new laboratories for biology, chemistry, and civil, mechanical, and chemical engineering; and space for faculty and staff. With its distinctive glass and aluminum exterior, EEEL creates an impressive front door to the community as the first major University building at the north campus entrance.
The Texas Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory expanded and renovated its 19,500-sf laboratory in Amarillo to add a BSL-3 suite, the state's second such laboratory dedicated to animal disease diagnosis. The lab is designed to function primarily as a BSL-2, but contains built-in features and SOPs that allow it to convert to BSL-3 in the event of a suspected outbreak of a highly contagious animal and/or zoonotic disease.
