Science Building at Susquehanna University

STV provided complete architectural and engineering design for a new 81,000-square-foot science building at Susquehanna University. The three-story structure is the largest academic building on campus and includes teaching and faculty research labs, classrooms, lecture halls, seminar rooms, computer labs, a rooftop greenhouse and lab support space.

The building’s design blends with the campus’ vernacular Georgian-style architecture. The $25 million building has been LEED® certified to the Silver level by the U.S. Green Building Council. HVAC efficiencies are achieved through computerized controls, low-flow chemical hoods in labs, a process cooling loop, energy-recovery equipment and high-efficiency boilers. Low-flow fixtures and efficient landscaping have reduced water usage by 30 percent.

The firm also provided programming and planning services.
