MILLENNIUM SCIENCE COMPLEX
The Millennium Science Center, completed in late 2011, is a state-of-the-art research facility that brings together the Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences and the Material Research Institution. Located in the middle of campus, the building promotes interdisciplinary collaboration that will revolutionize industries ranging from transportation and energy to medicine to agriculture.
The Millennium Science Center's state-of-the-art features have earned the 275,000 sq. ft. building its LEED certification. Six green roofs reduce stormwater runoff, while enhancing energy efficiency and prolonging the life of the roof. Energy saving devices, such as highly efficient glass, motion sensor lights, and heat recovery wheels, reduce energy demands. The building structure allows isolation for rooms where the most sensitive science takes place, ensuring accuracy and safety. Visitors can admire a garden at the front of the building entrance and witness the two wings for the life sciences and material sciences coming together. The cantilever includes an opening in its roof structure to allow sun to reach the plaza and garden.
