UW Life Sciences Building Tour Sign Up - March 2nd
UW Life Sciences Building Tour | March 2nd, 3:00-4:30pm
The highly innovative and sustainable University of Washington Life Sciences Building (LSB) includes a 20,000 square-foot greenhouse and creates a new centerpiece for UW Biology. Home to the largest undergraduate major on campus, UW Biology educates more STEM students than any other program in the state. Tracking to LEED Gold, the building's highly innovative sustainable design was a result of a unique collaboration between designers and students from UW Solar. LSB boasts the first-of-its-kind installation of vertical glass solar fins on its exterior, one that is anticipated to generate enough electricity to light more than 12,400 square feet of offices throughout the year. Other sustainable features include operable windows for natural ventilation cooling, chilled beams and waves, a water reclamation system for greenhouse irrigation, radiant floors and rooftop solar panels. Students and visitors can learn about the research conducted within the building as well as real-time information about the building's energy and water usage from a touchscreen dashboard on the first floor.
