Lafayette College, Rockwell Integrated Sciences Center

New 100,000 GSF science facility designed to meet the space demands of the College’s Biology, Computer Science, and Neuroscience programs. Included is a 2,500 SF vivarium with holding rooms for non-primate animals, procedure rooms, cage and glass wash, as well as associated support spaces. The spaces are equipped with an air quality monitoring system (Aircuity) to allow for reduced air changes that improve the buildings energy performance. The MEP equipment includes a dedicated air-handling unit with redundant fans and redundant exhaust fans, all of which are on emergency power including a heat recovery chiller for cooling, condensing boilers for heating, and dedicated steam boilers for humidification. Additionally, the ISC provides space for the IDEAL Center, an entrepreneurship program connecting engineering and the liberal arts to solve real-world problems. LEED Platinum Certified.
