Advanced Manufacturing Center
Conceptual design envisions net-zero energy solution for advanced manufacturing training
The academic model proposes a core for advanced manufacturing careers education at Daley College in Chicago. The new facility, sited across the street from the existing campus, features a high-bay manufacturing center with perimeter classrooms and labs. It creates a new campus front door and provides a pedestrian bridge over to the existing building.
The 48,000-square-foot facility is designed to achieve net-zero energy consumption and accommodate a design-build construction delivery.
- Perforated metal rainscreen reflects advanced manufacturing
- Bridge connects new building to existing campus across the street
- Sawtooth roof design pays tribute to Chicago’s industrial heritage
- Rooftop photovoltaic panels help achieve net-zero energy design
- 3-D printed and CNC-milled architectural model supports the college’s pedagogy
