The Human and Agricultural Biosciences Building 1 (HABB1) is the first building within a new Biosciences Precinct at Virginia Tech. It houses faculty and graduate student researchers working to identify solutions to societal issues within the food, health and energy industries. HABB1 contains research space for the departments of Biological Systems Engineering and Food Sciences Technology.
There has been increasing levels of demand for design services for nearly all construction project types for the majority of the year as revealed in the Architecture Billings Index (ABI). 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.
The Architecture Billings Index (ABI) slipped in August after showing mostly healthy business conditions so far this year. 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.
Kent State Univ.’s College of Applied Engineering, Sustainability & Technology Building includes 14,000 nsf of research and teaching lab and lab support space in a 55,200-gsf building for the school of engineering. It houses labs for electrical engineering, aeronautical engineering, applied engineering, construction management, environmental design and fuel cell research.
Helios SERC scientists are developing solar-driven chemical converters that will create transportation fuels from water and carbon dioxide. Centered at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), and funded by the U.S. Dept. of Energy, this program includes experts from LBNL, Univ. of California Berkeley and partners from several other universities.
Designed for Partners In Health, the new home for Haiti’s National Pathology and Microbiology Reference Lab provides high-level lab space for clinical pathology and microbiology, including BSL-2 and BSL-3 labs, and addresses the critical need to diagnose and treat disease in Haiti.
The Architects Foundation, along with the AIA and the ACSA, announced a new member Request for Qualifications will be available September 1 as part of an expansion of the AIA’s ongoing Design & Health Research Consortium, which helps translate research into the influence design has on public health for the public, policymakers, design and public health professionals.
The Architecture Billings Index (ABI) is reflecting healthy and sustained demand for design services in nearly all nonresidential project types. 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.
The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Committee on Architecture for Education (CAE) has selected nine educational facilities for this year’s CAE Education Facility Design Awards. The program honors educational facilities that the jury believes should serve as an example of a superb place in which to learn, furthering the client's mission, goals and educational program while demonstrating excellence in architectural design.
A new study provides guidance to health officials and drinking water providers on how to decontaminate plumbing systems. The study is the first step toward science-based flushing protocols that can be applied to recover from a drinking water contamination incident.
Though U.S. architecture firms are still recovering from the Great Recession, overall business conditions are improving allowing an increase in compensation for architecture positions. Compensation across the profession increased an average of 1.8%/yr over the 2013–14 period.
