A look inside UC Berkeley's new Energy Biosciences Institute building
The University of California, Berkeley, recently completed its $130 million, five-story Energy Biosciences Institute building. The 113,000-square-feet building at at 2151 Berkeley Way will feature modern facilities for scientific research, study and collaboration focusing on turning non-food crops into fuels. The structure, designed by SmithGroupJJRand built by Rudolph and Sletten, also comes with a myriad of green elements such as automated “smart” outside window shades, a lighting control system with building sensors, and an auto-adjusting air exchange system.
