Lafayette College Rockwell Integrated Sciences Center

Turner is providing preconstruction and construction management services for the new construction of the 103,000 square foot Lafayette College Rockwell Integrated Sciences Center. Demolition of existing buildings and significant site utility relocations were necessary to accommodate the new building, which faces Anderson Courtyard in a highly-trafficked area of the campus.

The finished building will consist of five floors comprising primarily classrooms and laboratory space. The facility will also feature a four-story atrium and an open-air courtyard. The building will house biology, computer science, environmental science, expansion space for neuroscience, and the Innovative Degree Excellence in Accelerated Learning (IDEAL) programan entrepreneurship program connecting engineering and the liberal arts. 6,000 square feet of shelled space is also included for future expansion. 

The building consists of a composite structural steel frame on spread footings. Clad in a combination of architectural precast concrete, masonry and glass, the building includes PVC roof systems with select vegetated areas. Mechanical and electrical systems are served by integrated chilled and hot water equipment and an emergency generator. The MEP systems are independent of the campus systems.

The project has been designated within Turner as a National Lean Go and See project for its outstanding application of lean practices to the building process. Once completed, the building will represent an environmentally responsible model of sustainability and serve as a living laboratory for sustainability. The facility is seeking a minimum of LEED Gold certification.
