The new 550,000 gsf complex will be the cornerstone of the new Allston Campus and home of the John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Harvard’s Allston Science Complex, the largest project ever undertaken by Harvard will set new standards in energy efficiency and quality of the working environments. Passive strategies will be adopted wherever possible, and will be supported by sophisticated HVAC equipment. Progressive design strategies will be adopted to reduce demands on energy resources. These include flexible programming, radiant heating/cooling systems, natural ventilation, advanced methods of heat recovery, roof gardens, storm water management, solar strategies, sophisticated facade systems, site remediation and daylight enhancement systems. Construction is scheduled to be completed in 2020.
