Scott Hall at Carnegie Mellon
The Bertucci Nanotechnology Laboratory Entry Pavilion at Scott Hall, the new Nano-Bio-Energy Technologies Building for the College of Engineering and the Wilton E. Scott Institute for Energy Innovation at Carnegie Mellon University. To achieve LEED BD+C Gold certification, all materials/resources and building systems enforce carbon reduction strategies, reduce energy consumption and improve indoor environmental quality with use of regional and low-emitting materials and recycled content, in addition to continuous air filtration systems, exhaust air heat recovery, demand-controlled ventilation systems, cascaded water loops, water-cooled lab equipment, and high efficiency interior lighting. Ecologically sound material choices include masonry, glass, steel, concrete, carpet, paint, ceiling tiles, ceramic tile, doors and window treatments. Water conservation highlights the new 35,000 square foot state-of-the-art green roof atop the Bertucci Wing to collect storm water for high-capacity storage tanks and a rain garden.
