About Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Complex
Sustainable and green buildings are rising in popularity. GBRI has compiled this list of 100 stunning and innovative green building projects from around the world. The Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Complex is part of Northeastern University. The University’s Boston campus is part of GBRI case study series . Here we look at amazing green building projects from around the world.
Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Complex (ISEC) can be seen at Northeastern University’s Boston campus to the south of a major rail corridor. This seven-story structure stands amongst historic New England style buildings and busy roadways. Inside it holds a state of the art laboratories and educational space with a central skylit area for socialization and studies. All of which are managed by a strict energy conservation and natural ventilation system. In addition that satisfies all laboratory safety requirements in a minimally energy-intensive way. On the outside this facility brings a glimpse of nature back into this historic city in a way. Similarly that educates and inspires the builders of our future.
