Tucson, AZ   |   Green Globes for New Construction   |   Three Green Globes

The University of Arizona Biological Sciences Research Laboratory in Tucson, AZ received Three Green Globes for New Construction in February 2019. Laboratories are often heavy consumers of resources and high waste producers. The project team addressed these challenges early on in the integrated design process and created a design that focuses on functionality, technological advancements, and sustainability without compromise. Notable features of this project include impressive water reduction methods, such as xeriscape plantings and permeable pavement; nearly 80% reduction of waste from landfills through extensive recycling programs during construction; and energy consumption reduction methods, through the use of a passive solar envelope and other design features.
