University of Washington, Seattle School of Medicine 3.2
Neighbors with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, and the Allen Institute for Brain Science, it is no surprise that Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood was the perfect home for the University of Washington School of Medicine. The 784,000 sf campus will go up over the course of 10 years.
Glumac provided energy compliance and LEED modeling on Phase 3.2, the eight-story, 169,000-square-foot clinic and research lab building. Glumac analyzed roughly 20 energy efficiency measures for total building performance and put the information into a user-friendly metric, so the project team could make informed decisions on cost savings and simple paybacks.
Lab buildings have high ventilation requirements, to process any dangerous contaminants, so the project team placed a large focus on heat recovery ventilation air at the air handling units. The facility’s high-efficiency systems, coupled with those at the adjacent building (Phase 3.1), allow for some of the expelled heat to be shared. The heat is repurposed, rather than rejected to the outdoors and going to waste, creating the effect of a small-scale, waste-heat recovery district.
The project also features a skybridge to the adjacent building, pedestrian-friendly walkways, and a modern orange ribbon wall.
