Integrated Science Building; Amherst, MA

Over the course of six years, NV5 managed all planning, design, and construction activities for a new laboratory building for the University’s Chemistry and Life Science Departments. The 156,000 square foot building houses three floors of academic lab space, one floor of flexible research space, a 350-seat auditorium, classrooms, office suites, and a computer resource center. This project also includes the construction of a new district chilled water plant and distribution piping to provide chilled water to the numerous campus buildings in the region. The LEED-qualifying project features a number of green building design initiatives, including a rainwater reclamation system and an elaborate, passive solar structure that shades the atrium curtain wall. NV5 also managed the comprehensive Master Planning effort that is establishing a new pedestrian zone and which will guide future development in this sector of the campus.
