Project Description:

The Plant Sciences Building (PSB) is a 184,815 square foot, five-story building of type IB construction.  Spaces developed within the building are planned to enhance the collaboration and connectivity among the University colleges, with the community, and the economy.   The Plant Science Initiative (PSI) Governance model will create a hierarchy of goals related to the activities occurring within the building.  These goals include both research and outreach efforts.  Attracting the public to the facility, creating space for extension services and showcasing the current research to the community are all fundamental goals of the building design.  Criteria developed for the program, finishes, and massing of the building, address planned functions and dedicated areas for these activities within the building.

  • Rooftop greenhouse space will provide fully conditioned under glass growth environments. There will be a mix of BL2-P and BL3-P greenhouse space.  The greenhouses will be supported by headhouse, storage and greenhouse office and conference space (provided as part of future bid packages).
