Montgomery College academic center to seek LEED Gold

August 17, 2011 |

A new 127,000-sf classroom building at Montgomery College in Germantown, Md., will provide students and faculty with 50% more academic space to study science and technology. Deemed the Bioscience Education Center, the building, designed by The Lukmire Partnership, Arlington, Va., is expected to receive LEED Gold certification. Solar photovoltaic panels, a green roof system, wind turbines, high-efficiency systems, and water-saving plumbing will help the campus achieve desired sustainability goals. Part of a collaborative effort between the State of Maryland, Montgomery County, and the Germantown Development Project, the center will provide a mix of state-of-the-art laboratories for robotics and microbiology, a conference center, classrooms, administrative offices, a greenhouse, and a campus quad.
