Working with an ambitious timeline of just under one year, Perkins+Will has reinvented two facilities as new pharmacology labs for Long Island Univ. Located on the top floor of a three-story building in downtown Brooklyn, N.Y., the 6,000-sf labs expands Long Island Univ.’s position in the area of graduate education and research by creating an advanced analytical lab.
Toronto’s Forensic Services and Coroner’s Complex (FSCC) has received an Award of Merit from the 2014 American Institute of Architects Justice Facility Review. Stantec Architecture, in association with MWL Architects, served as the Proponent Design Architects and Architects of Record on the project.
Inadequate insulation is one of the largest causes of wasted energy, quickly allowing comfortable heating or cooling to disperse air outside. That’s why researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory are collaborating with industry to develop a high-performance material that nearly doubles the performance of traditional insulators without a high cost premium.
The American Institute of Architects (AIA) announced a legislative agenda for the 114th Congress that sets a path for increasing construction activity, creating jobs, preserving the nation’s heritage and ensuring that new generations of architects design a resilient future for America.
There were 10 out of 12 months of increasing demand for design services in 2014, and the Architecture Billings Index (ABI) points to a healthy outlook for the nonresidential construction industry. As a leading economic indicator of construction activity, the ABI reflects the approximate nine to 12 month lead time between architecture billings and construction spending.
Windows allow brilliant natural light to stream into homes and buildings. Along with light comes heat that, in warm weather, we often counter with energy-consuming air conditioning. Now scientists are developing a new kind of "smart window" that can block out heat when the outside temperatures rise. The advance could one day help consumers better conserve energy on hot days and reduce electric bills.
Georgia Tech’s Engineered Biosystems Building will provide 218,880 sf of flexible interdisciplinary lab space for researchers collaborating in the fields of chemical biology, cell therapies and systems biology. A principle goal of the design is to foster interaction between chemists, engineers, biologists and computational scientists from two separate colleges: the College of Engineering and the College of Science.
