; RUTGERS BREAKS GROUND FOR NEW SUSTAINABLE
Rutgers recently broke ground on the new Chemistry & Chemical
Biology (CCB) Building. Designed by Flad Architects, the building
features flexible labs, modern instructional space and a layout
that embraces the informal interaction and collaboration needs of
a scientific community. This signature science building will house
new smart classrooms with cutting-edge technologies that work
seamlessly with modern teaching methods. Demonstrating Rutgers’ expressed commitment to environmental stewardship, the
new building will also be highly sustainable. The CCB Building is
designed with the goal of LEED Gold certification, reducing energy
consumption through several green design elements. With construction expected to be complete in 2016, the CCB Building will
become a new focal point on Rutgers’ Busch Campus.
