Nanoscale Material Science and Engineering Building
The Nanoscale Material Science and Engineering facility includes clean research labs, wet and dry labs and support functions for the College of Engineering and the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences. The University currently is the single largest supplier of nanotube and nanomaterials to other research institutes in the nation. This research facility houses advanced equipment for imaging, manipulation and fabrication of material at the atomic level as well as atomic and molecular imaging and manipulation in the bionano interface.
This facility is a highly flexible structure that can readily accommodate programmatic changes. The project's sustainable goals are equivalent of LEED Silver or Green Globes Two Globes standard. The facility is highly energy efficient, incorporating water use reduction and water re-use features. Access to daylight and views is provided for all office spaces and in the labs that can tolerate exterior light.
