The 29,000 sf Building 7 Addition is the first in a series of projects to take place as part of the 2008 Rock Creek Redevelopment project. Rather than building on a new site, this addition to the existing 1993 Science Building preserves open green space on campus. The $10 million dollar project includes general purpose classrooms and support spaces such as a Multi-cultural Center, a Teaching and Learning Center, a Women’s Resource Center, a 5,000 sf Student Learning Center with open workspace and computer stations, three large casual study lounges and several smaller group study rooms. The addition utilizes a number of sustainable design strategies such as on-site stormwater treatment, a rain garden, a wind-powered turbine and ventilators on the roof, and incorporation of rapidly renewable and high recycled content materials. The addition’s east curtain wall spans the length of the building, maximizing daylighting and views. The project’s flexible design will allow the space to adapt over time. Demolition occurred during the 2012 summer, with the existing building remaining occupied during construction. The project was completed for Spring Term 2014.
