Located in the Ace Basin, this project included offices, dorms, an observation tower, conference center, and an educational laboratory for training student marine biologists. The client wanted to achieve maximum use of recycled or ‘green’ products and techniques wherever possible. This approach resulted in a scope which included low maintenance exterior finishes, on-site milled trees for the wood flooring and a waste management plan to minimize the creation of demolition and construction waste on the project. In conjunction with the waste management plan, high efficiency appliances and a geothermal HVAC system were included to lessen the burden of costs and waste.

The project scope of work consisted of construction of a one story building on driven piles including interior finishes, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and site work.  This project had a special focus on environmentally friendly waste management.  All building materials had to be recycled, when possible.  Our waste management plan outlined a procedure for disposing of framing material to be ground up and disposed in flowerbeds as mulch.
