Caltech, LightLab: The Resnick Sustainability Institute and Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis, Pasadena, Calif.December 2, 2013 3:48 pm | Comments
The project had four significant challenges: a complete revamping of the function of the facility from a computer science space to a building full of wet labs; two distinct research centers, each constrained by the space; a very robust program desire accompanied by not enough funding; and a very tight schedule set by the U.S. Dept. of Energy, which partially funded the project.
The partnership will roll out several targeted initiatives focused on increasing disclosure, awareness and transparency of building product composition and the manufacturing processes. The goal of the program is to accelerate market transformation and the overall quality and performance of buildings.
The new lab will be housed in the ABS Center for Engineering, Science and Research, to be built in the spring of 2014 on the Maine Maritime Academy campus. The lab will focus on the research and development of emissions reductions technologies and engine efficiency enhancement technologies for marine and related power plants.
The Michael A. Evans Center for Health Sciences responds to changing healthcare and teaching practices that emphasize team-based curriculum, interprofessional education and experiential learning. The 140,000-sf facility features patient simulation centers, an anatomy lab, an osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM) lab, classrooms, lecture halls and administrative offices.
PSU’s Green Building Research Lab will monitor sensors and a weather station on a North Portland Walmart, which will feature 40,000 sf of vegetative roof to test aspects of green roof design, such as materials and soil depth. Data collected from the Portland site will be compared to a similar project at a Walmart green roof in Chicago.
Samsung broke ground in August on the 1.1-million-sf campus for their device solutions group in San Jose, Calif. The video includes an interview with NBBJ's Jonathan Ward who is leading the design of the project. The campus will be comprised of a 10-story tower, an amenity pavilion and parking garage.
RMW architecture & interiors was the architect for the ambitious overhaul of Building 74 in the East Canyon section of Berkeley Lab’s hillside campus. The LEED Platinum recognition is not just the first LEED Platinum for Berkeley Lab; it is the first for the DOE Science Lab Infrastructure program.
Slated for opening in 2016, the $839 million Jacobs Medical Center will include three specialized hospitals: the Hospital for Advanced Surgery, the Hospital for Cancer Care and the Hospital for Women and Infants. Construction of the 509,500-sf building began in January 2012.
In its recommendation to the DOE, the GSA recommended the Green Building Initiative's Green Globes 2010 and the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED 2009 as the third-party certification systems that the federal government can use to gauge performance in its construction and renovation projects.
MSM completed the first phase in a series of planned renovation and facilities expansion projects. The projects include: an animal surgery suite to enhance research into the effective treatment of strokes; a graduate teaching lab for the biomedical sciences; and a renovated research lab that consolidates four core biomedical research areas.
