The University of Arizona has selected GLHN Architects and Engineers, Inc. of Tucson to design a $42-million, 128,000-sq-ft addition to the university’s Environmental and Natural Resources Building. As architect and engineer of record for the ENR2 project, GLHN will work in association with Richard+Bauer of Phoenix on the design.
The ENR2 facility will house the Institute of the Environment, the School of Geography Development and the School of Natural Resources & Environment, and will be designed to facilitate scientific collaboration and interdisciplinary research. The project intends to create a facility that reflects the university’s commitment to design excellence and sustainability in the Sonoran Desert environment. Therefore, LEED platinum will be sought for the project.
