Located in Evanston, Illinois, Northwestern University’s Engineering Life Sciences infill is a bright, multi-disciplinary space with collaborative gathering areas and cutting-edge classrooms, laboratories, and research rooms. The expansion rises five stories, bridging two of the campus’ existing building wings. It is designed to Silver standards under the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC’s) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program.
