Seattle Academy of Arts and Sciences has a new five-story, 34,000-square-foot science and engineering building at the corner of 13th Avenue and East Spring Street on Capitol Hill.
The STREAM Building brings together studies in science, technology, robotics, engineering, arts and math. It has seven laboratory and studio classrooms, a two-story learning commons and associated staff offices.
Designed by The Miller Hull Partnership, the project aims for LEED gold or platinum status. It uses power from photo-voltaic panels and has a green roof atop a new breezeway, connecting to the school's Arts Building.
Other green features for STREAM include a 12,000-gallon cistern for rainwater, hydronic ceiling panels, radiant heat floors and passive cooling.
GLY is the general contractor.
