project at a glance

Princeton University’s 265,000 square foot Frick Chemistry Building houses the chemistry department and laboratory space for research, teaching, faculty and administrative offices. A four-story sky-lit atrium connects the laboratory wing with the administrative offices providing a light filled space with pedestrian bridges for special functions, and to promote scientific collaboration.

Together with the surrounding Natural Sciences Neighborhood, the facility is now one of the most environmentally sustainable areas of campus. In addition to landscape and storm water strategies the building incorporates sustainable building technologies, such as self-closing high efficiency fume hoods, Lutron auto-dimming lighting system, high-efficiency window glazing, photovoltaic solar panels that serve double-duty by generating a limited amount of electricity as well as providing shading for the atrium, and radiant slab heating that conditions the atrium space in cold weather. Additionally, heat recovery is applied to the large laboratory air handlers and exhaust systems, and systems are in place to capture and reuse rainwater.
