In preparing the Montgomery College Campus Master Plan, Torti Gallas was charged with providing a plan that would be sensitive to the needs of the college for 20-30 years. In the Master Plan update, Torti Gallas reviewed and adjusted its original design to meet current educational, facilities and parking criteria.
The new High Technology Science Center is a stucco and masonry facility with a natural light atrium for interior laboratory illumination, computer tutorial laboratories fully networked (LAN) with the Computer Science Center, computer classrooms, robotics laboratory, bio-medical laboratory, and telecommunications laboratory with a telecommunications antennae tower and platform accessible to students.
A new central chiller for the campus, based on ice storage/load shedding technology for cooling, is a key design feature of this project. This technology offers humidification control which imitates a fresh-air-like environment. This building also includes daylighting design and meets the Montgomery County Energy Design Guidelines.
