Iowa State University Student Innovation Center wins regional ASHRAE Technology award

The IMEG-designed Student Innovation Center at Iowa State University has received an ASHRAE Region VI 1st Place Technology Award for New Educational Facilities and will advance to the society level competition. 

IMEG provided engineering design services for the LEED Gold, $60 million building, which serves as a hub for students in the College of Engineering and College of Design. The 146,323-sf, student-centric building houses no faculty offices but a variety of spaces for students to collaborate and experiment. The center features fabrication areas for electronics, woodworking and textiles, metal working and engine test bays, as well as a test kitchen and a store selling products the students make. Also included in the five-story building are meeting rooms and breakout spaces, study and collaboration areas, administrative space, student organization offices, and a café. 

The project was also previously awarded an ENR Midwest Best Projects award in the Higher Education category.
