Indiana University Biolab & Classroom Building
Seeking not to disrupt the context of Bloomington’s 3rd Street corridor, this bio-lab classroom building was built to maintain the university’s design aesthetic while fitting into the surrounding environment. Developed via an aggressive 9 month design-build project delivery method, programming required the integration of classrooms, labs and faculty offices onto three floors, with one floor below grade. To ensure a successful result, the design-build team worked closely with several university groups throughout the duration of the project including the University Architect’s Office, Administration personnel, and faculty members who would be utilizing the building. The IU Biolaboratory Classroom is featured in American School & University Magazine’s 2008 Architectural Portfolio as ‘Outstanding Design’.
