EwingCole Wins Laboratory of the Year High Honors

EwingCole received a 2015 Laboratory of the Year High Honors Award, given by R&D Magazine, Laboratory Design Newsletter and the Scientific Equipment and Furniture Association for its design of the Smithsonian Institution’s Charles McC. Mathias Laboratory. This prestigious international competition recognizes excellence in research laboratory design, planning, and construction. EwingCole’s project was the only winning entry from the United States.

Designed to be the first LEED Platinum building for the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC), the Mathias Lab demonstrates a renewed commitment by the Smithsonian and the US Congress to invest in crucial environmental research. This project is a cornerstone of sustainable development outlined in EwingCole’s master plan for SERC’s 2,650-acre site, located on the shoreline of the Rhode River and Chesapeake Bay.

The award will be presented in Atlanta on April 28 at the annual Laboratory Design Conference at the Hyatt Regency Hotel.  Howard Skoke, AIA, EwingCole’s principal project planner and designer, will be on hand to receive the award and share an overview of the project.
