A collaboration between the Washington University School of Medicine and Barnes-Jewish Hospital, Mid Campus Center is a 12-story medical office building located on the southeast side of Hope Plaza, at the intersection of South Euclid Avenue and Children’s Place. The project sits at the juncture of several transportation modes and serves to unite several departments across the institutions. Situated on a remediated brownfield site, the Mid Campus Center design includes a green building education system to help students, personnel, and visitors understand the sustainable features of the building.
FIRST COST We used xeriscaping to ensure no irrigation was needed or provided on the project. In addition, the facility leverages a nearby solar farm on campus to supply a portion of the energy needed for operations.
RESPONSIBLE MATERIAL USE The project site is a brownfield that was remediated to allow for the expansion of the campus in an urban environment. The project team was able to divert more than 95% of all the generated construction waste from a landfill. Materials made from recycled content and requiring less transportation were emphasized. Over half of the wood used on the project was sourced from sustainably managed forests and carried Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification.
