Dulles, VA

Southland Industries, one of the nation’s largest MEP building systems experts providing engineering, construction, service, and energy service solutions, was recently awarded the new Pennsylvania State University Chemical and Biomedical Engineering Laboratory Building in University Park, Pennsylvania. In addition to Southland, the design-assist project team includes HOK, Barton Malow Company, RG Vanderweil, and M.C. Dean.

Totaling 195,000 square feet, the new building will replace the current Fenske Laboratory Building which houses the chemical and biomedical engineering staff and departments. Each of the departments are expected to see significant growth in the coming years and having two major College of Engineering departments under one roof will allow for efficiencies in administration, research and instructional areas, and research opportunities. From conceptual design through completion and turnover of the new facility, Southland will provide design-assist services for the HVAC, plumbing, process, and fire protection systems in an integrated project delivery – like environment.

With a goal of LEED Gold certification, the project is currently in the design phase. The construction phase is expected to begin in March 2016 and conclude in November 2018.
