UW Bothell Phase 3 Academic Science Building

Bothell, WA United States

Thomas Hacker Architecture (THA), Lease Crutcher Lewis, Northshore Sheet Metal (Building Envelope)


Project Description

The new science building will accommodate the increasing program and enrollment capacity of the University. It will serve as an academic hub for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) programs and houses classrooms and laboratories for chemistry, life science, physics, electrical engineering, software development and geographic information system.

As part of the design theme, “Science and Sustainability on Display,” the building includes scientific displays, art, and artifacts, as well as interactive dashboards that show energy use and sustainable building performance. Prominent places for collaboration and interdisciplinary learning are integrated throughout, as well as viewing windows into laboratory classrooms and prep labs.

Sustainability is a particular focus of the University and the design team. The building is oriented east-west for optimal solar control with the use of daylight, sunshades and light controls. Operable windows in the classrooms and offices increase occupants’ control. Chilled beams, displacement ventilation, heat recovery, and solar hot water will further decrease energy use. The design team will use the campus’ extraordinary wetlands to manage all storm water within the campus boundary.
