The 225,000 sq ft Integrated Sciences Complex is the first new academic building built on the Columbia Point campus since it opened in 1974.  The complex supports interdisciplinary scientific research, teaching, and collaboration with research and instructional laboratories, a vivarium, a five-story atrium for events and collaboration, and support space.  The building features a variety of glass enclosure systems that offer the occupants oceanfront views and a full-height, glass-clad entrance that serves as a focal point with views to the interior for those entering the campus.  SGH consulted on the building enclosure and assisted with structural design of the custom curtain wall systems.
