More about the building: The Krishna P. Singh Center for Nanotechnology is a premier facility that integrates state-of-the-art nanotechnology equipment.

Designed by Weiss/Manfredi and due to open in 2013, the 78,000 gross square foot facility will house several multi-user experimental laboratories critical to advanced research and development in nanotechnology.

In addition to the laboratory spaces, the building features a courtyard, public galleria, a forum space and high-profile conference rooms. The building is targeting LEED Silver Certification, a "green" building program for energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts. These efforts will include a "green roof" to capture 90 percent of storm water runoff, the diversion of construction waste from landfills and the optimization of the building's energy performance to at least 17.5 percent beyond industry requirements.
