Senator Jack M. Martins and his Senate colleagues from Long Island toured the new Life Sciences Building at Nassau Community College.
The “U-shaped" Life Sciences building features laboratories, classrooms, faculty offices, conference spaces, computer labs and group study spaces. The interior of the U contains an open-air courtyard. The new Life Sciences building will set the standard for all future new construction and renovation on campus.
The Life Sciences building is the college’s first “green” building, meaning that it will use natural lighting and landscaping, have recycled copper panels on the building’s exterior and incorporate smart boards and wireless technology throughout. The 74,000 square-foot building is located adjacent to the cluster buildings on the north end of campus.
