|Los Alamos County Nature Center|
Catalyst Architecture has completed the construction drawings for the LEED Silver Los Alamos Nature Center project. The place-based energy-efficient design by principal Jeffrey Zucker features abundant natural daylight, rainwater harvesting, a thermally efficient building envelope, and roof-mounted photovoltaics.
This 6,000 sq.ft. Design/Build effort is being led by Klinger Constructors, in association with Mullen Heller Architects- both of Albuquerque NM. The tenant and primary stakeholder for the project is the Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC), which has been operating nature education programs about the Pajarito Plateau for a number of years.
The project is set for groundbreaking the 1st week of May. Stay tuned for pictures of the construction in progress!
