Georgia Tech Engineered Biosystems Building

The Engineered Biosystems Building (EBB) provides flexible interdisciplinary laboratory space for researchers collaborating in the fields of Chemical Biology, Cell Therapies and Systems Biology. This unique environment connects people from multiple disciplines and departments focusing on specific societal problems in a holistic manner. Interaction between chemists, engineers, biologists and computational scientists from the College of Science, College of Engineering and College of Computing is fostered in the facility. The building includes wet laboratories, classrooms, a Highland Bakery Cafe, and offices and is home to the Physiological Research Laboratory (PRL). Sustainable features include a high performance envelope with sun shading, energy recovery wheels, radiant flooring, chilled beams, condensing hot water boilers, displacement ventilation, demand control ventilation, rainwater recovery, high efficiency plumbing fixtures, LED lighting, and daylighting.

The Engineered Biosystems Building is the recipient of the 2016 AIA Georgia Design Merit Award and the 2016 ENR Southeast Award of Merit for Best Sustainable Building Practices.
