With a growing bio-based economy in Michigan, designers of the MSU bioengineering facility planned this four-story research laboratory structure to stand out – as a scientific destination within its academic district and as a model for energy efficiency. Expressed in a distinctive pallet of white, gray and black, the building provides a pleasing contrast to surrounding red brick and beige concrete structures. With an ambitious goal of 50% energy savings and LEED certification, every element of this building is carefully considered.
SunGuard® SN 68 low-E glass provides a neutral, airy connection to the outdoors. As part of the building’s glass curtainwall, it deftly manages solar heat gain while transmitting lots of natural light. The façade also features a graduated silkscreened pattern of dots, which provides visual interest and reduces glare for researchers at work.
