East Carolina University
Life Science & Biotechnology Building
Lord Aeck Sargent has designed the Life Science & Biotechnology Building, which houses cutting-edge research as well as public-private partnerships.
The building’s program includes classrooms and laboratories that allow students to work alongside scientific partners within the surrounding community. The building serves as a new gateway building for the ECU campus, and its prominent location puts its science and research functions on display.
The design also included a master plan that integrates this building with the campus and accommodates a future research building on the site. The building, which is LEED Silver Certified, was funded by the NC Connect bond.
