Science and Natural Resources Building at Columbia College
This 33,000-plus square-foot building features separate laboratories for chemistry, biology, and physics, lecture rooms, a conference room, an earth science and forestry computer lab, an OSHA-approved storage and disposal facility, and various stock rooms, equipment storage rooms, study rooms, and display cabinets. Completed under budget and on schedule, the two-story facility is USGBC LEED Gold-certified with sustainability features including tubular skylights, a glazing system on windows, exterior building stone, solar hot water panels, solar photovoltaic panels, white reflective Thermoplastic Polyolefin roofing, and manual operable windows. Designed to fit the unique Yosemite-style prevalent in Sonoma, existing space was reused to limit environmental impact. With the integration of this new building, the science program now has state-of-the-art technology and equipment, and a building that meets all current health/air quality and chemical storage standards.
