Institute Hall

Project Info

Name: Institute Hall

Client: Rochester Institute of Technology

Location: Rochester, New York

Project Summary

Beginning work in June 2011, the Welliver team overcame the challenge of building on an occupied campus and completed the project in just 18 months. The new building, which provides space for chemistry, biomedical and teaching laboratories and features a high-end computing system, thin film laboratory, laser laboratory, and fully-operational vivarium. Challenges included ever-evolving design plans, underground utility relocation, and coordinating the mechanical room located on the top floor of the building. However, BIM software technology, familiarity with the campus, and readily-available company resources aided the project team in successfully expediting the project so the facility was ready for RIT’s spring semester.  

 

This project is LEED Gold-intended due to the use of renewable materials, energy-efficient utilities and eco-friendly construction methods. The facility features a two-story bridge and atrium area with floor-to-ceiling glass windows that maximize day-lighting; a bio-retention runoff pond to the west; and one of only four green data centers in the United States.
