The Norman Hackerman Building provides modern education, research and development space for the College of Natural Sciences with technology-enabled classroom/seminar space, undergraduate teaching laboratories, and research laboratories for the Institute for Neuroscience, The Center for Learning and Memory, and Synthetic Organic Chemistry. Sophisticated core facilities – including a center for imaging and analysis, an NMR facility, and an electron microscopy core facility – provide advanced infrastructure.
The modern design builds upon the architectural and visual aesthetic of the UT campus core. It incorporates both LEED and Labs 21 sustainable design strategies, and is LEED Gold certified. Sustainable strategies include a large rooftop solar array, a condensate recovery system, and high-performance building envelope.
