Drexel University, Constantine N. Papadakis Integrated Sciences Building

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

In 2009, Philadelphia’s Drexel University opened the Constantine N. Papadakis Integrated Sciences Building, home to the school’s biology department. Designed by Diamond Schmitt Architects, Crossey Engineering created the electrical and mechanical systems for the 150,000 sq. ft. facility.

With an approximate construction cost of $69 million, the building includes a 75 ft. high living biowall, the largest in North America, which helps to cool the air in summer and circulate heat in the winter. Modular laboratories, faculty research laboratories, administration offices, classrooms, lecture halls, and conference rooms were also integrated in the layout.
