The newly completed Biomedical Sciences Partnership Building on the Phoenix Biomedical Sciences Campus advances the desert vernacular of its predecessor and neighbor, the CO-designed Health Science Education Building (HSEB). While the copper facade is the most visible sustainable measure, this LEED Silver-certified building features a multitude of innovative sustainable technologies and designs.
How has the changing pace of the design profession influenced design quality? Here at CO we have developed systems that ensure high design quality and productivity no matter the pace of a project.
Driven by his interest in understanding processes and tools used to construct the buildings we design, designer Chris Kaiser reached out to our contractor at the Biomedical Sciences Partnership Building in Phoenix, to arrange a climb up a tower crane and experience it first-hand.
The Biological and Physical Sciences Building passed a major hurdle, receiving design and environmental approval at the July UC Regents meeting.
