Winner of Research and Development's 2006 Lab of the Year, Tempe, Arizona's Biodesign Building B is the first LEED Platinum certified building in the state. Home to departments that study healthcare, sustainability, and security; the facility is on the cutting edge of bioscience research. Designed through a collaboration between Lord Aeck Sargent and Gould Evans Associate Architects, the structure is composed of locally sourced materials and contains 175,000 square feet of research space. The campus master plan calls for four buildings, and along with Building B, Building A was completed in 2004. Sustainability results include a 40% reduction in water usage and 50% of the building construction waste was recycled.
