The structural design allows it to adapt for future needs. The project was completed on time for the September 2018 semester.
A unique feature of the building is that much of the structure is visible allowing it to function as living lab for students who are studying engineering and clean technology, giving them the opportunity to view its distinctive elements as part of their learning. To achieve the needs of the space, an integrated design approach was used.
