School of Medicine Research Building

Riverside, CA United States

SRG Partnership, Inc.

 

Project Description

The School of Medicine Research Building was designed by SRG in order to attract and retain senior research faculty for the University’s new medical school, which aims to enroll students by Fall 2012. Design goals for the building sought to provide highly efficient, flexible research lab space that would exceed the energy savings of typical research labs. Sustainable features include ample daylighting, a night flush/mass cooling system, chilled beams in labs to optimize ventilation rates, and a dynamic shade control system that auto-adjusts to sun conditions. A projected Energy Use Intensity of 128Kbtu/yr/sf establishes a current benchmark for university research labs. The Research Building uses at least 30% less energy than the levels defined by ASHRAE Standard 90.1 and California’s Title 24; it is targeting LEED Gold as the University’s first LEED-registered project.
