We are down to the final stretch. As we wrap up the “debris” causing activities such as drywall finishing, floor prep and dropping of ceiling tiles we are allowed to remove the temporary air conditioning units from the three story side of the building. Once the temporary air is removed, the permanent AC units for that individual floor are started and continually running. The glass & glazing contractor is right behind our temporary air vendor closing up the windows and making sure we have a sealed building. The temporary air requirement was mandated by IRSC as well as helping with achieving extra LEED credits for this project.

Since this is a LEED Project, we will not be turning on the building’s AC units until the end of the project. To counter this, we brought in a temporary air company to help dehumidify the building. Currently the three story side (Plan A) has temporary air. The corridors that adjoin Plan A and B sides have temporary barriers between them to help with the dehumidification of Plan A only.

Now that the structure of the new Brown Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship building is complete, the next big push is to frame the walls, drywall the ceilings and get ready for finishes. As this work progresses, the character of the building is really starting to take shape – and it’s all about the curves”, a feature that the architect is strongly emphasizing on this project. Everywhere you look inside and outside of the building, the various sizes and configurations of the curves are becoming more prominent.

Currently under construction is IRSC’s new 65,000 sf alternative energy center. With state and national incentives to convert renewable energy sources, the green industry offers a wide range of attractive business opportunities. To assist entrepreneurs in this and other emerging fields such as nanotechnology, photonics and robotics, H. J. High is constructing the Brown Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (BCIE) on the Main Campus.
