Completed two months ahead of schedule, this education and research center seeks to train future business leaders in science and technology inside 80,000 sq ft of space that includes classrooms, lecture halls and an auditorium. The LEED-Gold project was designed to consume 20% less energy than state requirements stipulate through use of natural ventilation and rooftop solar panels. A tapered curtain wall reaching more than four stories in height provides a dramatic exterior. Multiple exterior skin systems, such as thermoset resins reinforced with wood fibers, Trespa panels and thin stone panels laminated to aluminum honeycomb cores, were seamlessly blended together.
