Kornberg Center is a 26,300m2 (283,000ft2) research and development facility completed in early 2021 providing laboratory and office space on three floors. The building’s architecture interconnects laboratories, office areas, and meeting spaces in a unique manner, providing an environment that is designed to nurture communication and innovation. Sustainability and energy efficiency are cornerstones of the design, factoring in learning from past projects like the facility in Walldorf, Germany completed in 2019. Kornberg Center features a double skin facade for insulation, expansive windows for daylighting, natural ventilation, active slab heating and cooling, and energy recovery or enthalpy wheels. Ground-source heat pumps enhance efficiencies of heating and cooling systems and a 250-kw photovoltaic array help to power the facility. A rainwater collection system with 50,000 gallons of storage capacity and a green roof further reduces impacts. These sustainability features reduce energy use in Kornberg by 65% compared to a facility built to code.
