Iowa State University Agricultural & Biosystems Engineering

Ames, IA

This complex brought Iowa State University Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering (ABE) faculty, staff, instructional and research activities to one complex via the construction of two new, four-story buildings with an atrium connecting to the third building of the Biorenwables Complex. The project included office, classroom, instructional and research laboratory spaces as well as a 150-seat auditorium; chemistry laboratories; and large and small laboratories designed for ABE teaching and research.

Instructional facilities included working areas for student scholarship, lab and lecture spaces that support an interactive laboratory learning environment and gathering space for faculty and students that encourages social and informal interactions.
