Construction of a 9,000 SF Science & Technology Incubator Building for Kettering University. The incubator was the first building in Kettering University’s Technology Park and was the first seeking LEED certification in Flint. It also established a benchmark for LEED certified construction in Flint. The project was designed and planned with LEED certification as a goal and enough points were achieved to
obtain the higher level Silver LEED certification.
The building includes 5,452 SF on the ground floor for laboratory space and another 3,150 SF on the first floor to support business incubator office space for new and existing companies. Amenities in the public space include a business center, executive and administrative offices, a conference room with high-tech audio/video systems, a café vending and seating area, and a reception area. The private space is home to six state-of-the-art wet and dry research laboratories. Each lab is approximately 700 SF and designed for easy division and addition.
