This 16,000 square foot addition to the Water & Environmental Science (also designed by ALSC) is LEED Gold certified. Sustainable features include reduced water use, energy savings, photovoltaics and natural daylighting.
The Phase 2 expansion provides additional teaching space to support research for restoring the Walla Walla watershed fishery, environmental education and water conservation practices. It was designed to provide comfortable, pleasant spaces where researchers and water managers can extend chance meetings into meaningful collaboration. Circulation is externally focused and spaces utilize natural daylight to de-institutionalize the facility and to provide a connection to nature. In the new gallery visitors and students can observe wet lab fish tanks, study a map of the Walla Walla watershed and view information on current research.
