Science Research and Teaching Center (Science Building 2), Portland State University, Portland, Oregon, United States
End-of-life building systems and seismic concerns challenged the future of this 1969, 250,000-square-foot science, teaching and R&D “workhorse” building. New systems and a cost-effective seismic reinforcing design provided this LEED Silver certified building another 50 years of service to students and researchers alike.
With a national goal to diversify the economy, retain Saudi youth and support entrepreneurs, CH2M created a 242,000-square-foot LEED Gold designed technology campus that provides Tier 3 cloud infrastructure, a post graduate teaching, conference and lecture center as well as high-tech business incubator facilities.
Ken Morrison Life Sciences Research Center, University of Nebraska, Lincoln, Nebraska, United States
Home of the Nebraska Center for Virology, CH2M supported the University and multidisciplinary R&D faculty from project inception, helping to secure the initial NIH grant funding, through the phased multi-year lab planning, design and construction of this 100,000-square-foot BSL-2 and BSL-3 laboratory facility.
Biopharmaceutical Production Facility, Bothell, Washington, United States
Situated within a conventional office park, this nearly 100,000-square-foot cancer drug pilot and manufacturing facility had to be both attractive and cost-effective. CH2M’s interdisciplinary design and engineering approach facilitated the construction and immediate operationality in the context of a dynamic market.
Global Headquarters, MEDRAD, Warrendale, Pennsylvania, United States
This CH2M-designed 125,000-square-foot corporate headquarters incorporates sustainable design principles, such as an under-floor system for air distribution and maximized daylight and views, to achieve LEED Gold certification. Its design was driven by the client’s desire to enhance collaboration and social interaction as well as flexibility.
