College of Lake County: New Science Building Additions
A new science building will be the first undertaking to kick-off a series of projects making up the College of Lake County’s Master Plan. The new 41,800-square-foot, three-story facility will house engineering and photonics/laser labs on the first floor, with chemistry labs on floors two and three. Also included in this project is the renovation of existing 24,900-square-foot B and C Wing spaces that will be vacated by the old chemistry labs. These spaces will be used to construct two new anatomy and physiology labs, as well as new classroom space.
The new science facility is proposed to be an LEED platinum building, which is the highest rating achievable through the United States Green Building Council. Associated Electrical Contractors will install a rooftop photovoltaic array, and LED lighting. Other green features of the building include geothermal heating and cooling, rainwater harvesting and a living wall.
