In this podcast, Joe Broemel, Dartmouth senior project manager, and David Andronico, project engineer with general contractor Bond Brothers, discuss the construction of the Class of 1978 Life Sciences Center. Currently at the halfway point (groundbreaking took place in September 2008), the building is dedicated to biological research and will house classrooms, laboratories, an auditorium, and gallery spaces. It was designed with sustainability in mind and is on track to be granted platinum LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification, the highest rating available from the U.S. Green Building Council.
