Iowa State University, Advanced Teaching & Research Building (ATRB)


Project Description

The ATRB project is new construction of a 121,608 SF building constructed on the Iowa State University (ISU) campus. The building houses portions of the entomology, genetics, development and cell biology, as well as the plant pathology and microbiology (PLPM) departments. The six-story building accommodates research, research equipment and related support space, office space, advanced teaching, formal and informal collaboration spaces, PLPM administrative spaces, the PLPM diagnostic clinic, a general university lecture hall and a penthouse-level greenhouse. This project was ISU’s first CMaR project. McGough worked with ISU through the process and developed a system that takes advantage of all CMaR’s benefits.
