Florida State University James King Jr. Life Sciences Building Commissioning

Commissioning of the James E. “Jim” King Jr. Life Sciences Building housing teaching and research laboratories, classrooms, a BSL-3 suite, a greenhouse complex for plant genetic research, shared environmental chambers, and support spaces. The facility also includes a cage wash facility and a 150 seat auditorium, which are common areas shared by other buildings located on the life sciences campus. The building houses more than half of the Department of Biological Science, specifically the divisions of cell and molecular biology; ecology, evolution and environmental science; and physiology and neuroscience. Sustainable features include bike racks, preferred parking for low-emitting vehicles, landscape plantings demanding less water, designated open space adjacent to the project, and dual flush valves and low flow shower heads.
