Building for the Next Generation

Our Projects

University of Minnesota-Duluth, Heikkila Chemistry and Advanced Materials Science Building


Project Description

The HCAMS center creates functional, open floor plans for lab flexibility, while concentrating resources for research efficiency, energy efficiency, and collaboration. The 68,000 SF building is flexibly designed to adapt to ever-changing science developments, including technological advances and evolution of teaching and research pedagogies. The facility includes nine labs, a large lecture room, general classrooms, math and science tutoring center, facility offices, support space, and a skyway connecting to the main campus across University Drive. In an effort to foster a great science community, research labs, classroom/teaching labs, and offices are configured in a neighborhood concept, with a central corridor that encourages conversation and collaboration.
