145,000 SF multidisciplinary research center combining bio safety level two wet research with dry computational laboratories
The Battelle Biological and Computational Science Facility project is a multidisciplinary research center combining biological safety level two wet research laboratories with extensive dry computational laboratories. The LEED®Gold facility also includes office and conference spaces all under high security containment. Numerous energy reduction strategies were employed in the project, includinggeothermal, heat recovery chillers, heat pipe systems in the air handlers, evaporative cooling, occupancy sensors tied to VAV air distribution, VAV fume exhaust, low pressure drop ductwork designs and extensive sun-shading.
