Research & Development Building 1 is the first of five buildings planned for the University of Miami Life Science & Technology Park. Opening in September 2011, the six-story, 252,800 square foot building was designed by ZGF Architects LLP and Ballinger engineers. The UMLSTP’s five-building master plan incorporates the use of previously under-utilized property in the Miami Health District with a focus on a sustainable medical community.
In this project, TROX USA provided active chilled beams Type DID632 for laboratory and office climate control. The chilled beam system increases air quality and allows a greater control of the indoor environment, significantly reducing energy usage versus traditional cooling systems.
The installation of TROX chilled beams in the first building of the Life Science & Technology Park contributed to significantly lower energy usage, reduced by an estimated 25 percent of the central plant’s energy requirements. The chilled beams remove the need for high-energy cooling fan systems. In the hurricane-prone climate of Miami, the chilled beam system additionally allows the Life Science & Technology Park’s first building to offset heat generated by lab equipment.
 
The building was estimated to use about 30 percent less energy than a comparable laboratory of the same size. The building was LEED® Gold pre-certified by the U.S. Green Building Council and voted 'Project of the Year' by Urban Land Institute's Southeast Florida/Caribbean Council.
