Natural Sciences Building Expansion/Renovation
Additions and renovations expand science program, modernize campus, and support sustainable initiatives
A 37,000-square-foot expansion houses mostly labs, while 23,000 square feet in renovations enlarge some labs and convert others to classrooms and offices. The project more than doubles the size of the facility and allows Joliet Junior College to offer more courses.
- Circulation loop surrounds labs and classrooms on both floors
- Light-filled break out areas in corridors encourage collaboration
- Rain gardens around courtyard reduce stormwater runoff
- Energy recovery wheel captures and redistributes heat
