The new Vagelos Laboratory for Energy Science and Technology (VLEST) will merge the disciplines of science and engineering to advance research on alternative sources of energy, uniting the efforts of the School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Engineering and Applied Science. The building will serve as the administrative home of the existing Vagelos Institute for Energy, Science and Technology and the existing Vagelos Integrated Program on Energy Research. Research conducted in this facility will be groundbreaking work that demands the most stringent temperature, humidity, acoustic and vibration controls. The design will pursue energy efficiency and sustainability concepts that are aligned with the mission of Vagelos Institute for Energy, Science and Technology and with the goals of the University’s Climate Action Plan. The new 115,000 GSF, $130,000,000 research laboratory building includes Wet Chemistry Research Labs, Optics Research Labs (VIEST), Lab Support Spaces and Core Labs in support of the Research Labs, Faculty Offices and Researcher Workstations, Administrative Suite Meeting Rooms, Office Support spaces, and additional Building Support spaces. Anticipated completion date is August 2024.
