PROGRAM

PVE developed this multipurpose venue for Carnegie Mellon University. The Scott Hall Nano-Bio-Energy-Technologies Building is a 105,000 square foot laboratory building on Carnegie Mellon University’s main campus. The building houses Class 100 and Class 10 clean room space, Biomedical Engineering, Soft Lithography and Energy Futures laboratories and lab support space along with office and conference space.  Approximately 20,000 square feet of the building possesses a green roof that acts as a grand entrance to the facility and an extension to the University’s main academic green mall. It also serves as a key component to the stormwater management and water quality performance of the building as a permanent installation.  The project includes substantial efforts of infrastructure relocation, realignment and redesign to accommodate the new structure and also allows for future campus expansion. Green stormwater management technologies as well as other LEED compliant design and construction methodologies were implemented within the project scope.
