NanoFabXtension, College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering, State University of New York, Albany, New York, United States
CH2M’s design of a new 330,000-square-foot research facility for advanced semiconductor and nanotechnology research and development is the first in the world to house extreme ultra-violet equipment and was finished in less than 20 months from the start of programming to first tenant occupancy. The award-winning design became the new flagship of SUNY Polytechnic, took advantage of a constrained site and overcame ambient site vibration challenges through innovative structural design.
University Technology Center, The Pennsylvania State University, Hershey, Pennsylvania, United States
Designed not only for visual quality and campus fit, performance, resiliency and cost effectiveness but also for energy efficiency and sustainability, CH2M led the design of the new facility expected to be 60 percent more energy efficient than typical data centers.
