A multi-disciplinary collaboration to provide a LEED Silver certified science facility for Nazareth College
The ability to collaborate between multiple disciplines was central in designing Nazareth College's new building—a $24M facility that is now home to the biology, chemistry, physics, earth science, general science and mathematics departments.
The 75,000 square foot building addresses other key attributes that are important to science education, including hands on learning, visibility, adaptability, and interdisciplinary teaching and learning. Formal learning environments include 20 teaching laboratories, 7 research laboratories, and 8 lab lecture/classrooms with modern technology. The building is LEED Silver certified, and notable features include building siting, integrated sun shades, two green roof gardens, and several building systems. The mechanical systems incorporate sophisticated strategies such as variable air volume and heat recovery, and the design embraces concepts promoted by labs of the 21st Century—including low pressure drop air transport systems, right sized systems, and air reuse.
Our design calls for occupancy sensors in all spaces to control lighting and temperature when the spaces are unoccupied, and high efficiency light fixtures and lamps are also provided. The result? A place where students and faculty can thrive.
