Rowley Center for Science & Engineering
This four-story, 95,000 SF LEED Gold certified Science building houses the College’s STEM-related programs in architecture, biology, engineering and natural sciences. A vegetated roof, underground storm water cistern, bio-retention areas, energy efficiency plumbing, HVAC and solar PV panels were some of the green building strategies implemented by Holt.
Holt also employed Lean construction whereby 40% of the construction materials used were recycled or produced locally and 98% of the waste generated was recycled or salvaged.
Holt understands that higher education projects require a specialized level of knowledge and often include the integration of complex renovation within occupied environments. Holt works collaboratively with the owner and architect in developing detailed plans that allow faculty and the student body to learn, grown and go home safely every day.
