Building for Environmental Research and Teaching, 85 Waterman Street
In December 2013, ECI administrative offices moved into the newly renovated Building for Environmental Research and Teaching at 85 Waterman Street. Designed by Toshiko Mori Architects to acheive LEED Gold status, the better-than-new building incorporates many sustainability features in its design and construction, including an innovative rainwater re-use system, high efficiency lighting, heating and cooling systems, extra insulation, and many recycled construction and furnishing materials.
Encouraging collaboration was central to all elements of building design, with comfortable nooks and inviting gathering spaces tucked among crosscutting environmental science laboratories, faculty offices, and shared workspaces for undergrads, grad students, postdocs and visitors.
Laboratories housed in the building include:
- EaRTH Lab for Geographic Information Systems research and training (relocated from MacMillan Hall)
- Climate Modeling Lab
- Conservation Science
- Conservation Medicine
- Climate and Development Group
- Marine Conservation Science
- Remote Sensing Lab
MacMillan Hall, 167 Thayer Street
MacMillan Hall houses shared research facililties, including sample preparation facilities, plant growth chambers, and a wide variety of precision analytical equipment for environmental chemistry. The equipment is routinely used by Environmental Studies, Geology, Ecology, Engineering, Bio-Med, and Chemistry students, post-docs, and other researchers with access and training provided by facilities director David Murray and his staff.
