Mar­quez Hall, a state-of-the-art $25 mil­lion facil­ity for pio­neer­ing teach­ing, research, and ser­vice, promises to fur­ther Col­orado School of Mines’ posi­tion as a global leader with a unique breadth of indus­try exper­tise. With the con­struc­tion of this cut­ting-edge build­ing, Mines’ Depart­ment of Petro­leum Engi­neer­ing will push the fore­front of new tech­nol­ogy and remain at the top of its class in recruit­ing and train­ing new petro­leum engi­neers.

Mar­quez Hall is also a model of effi­ciency, attain­ing a LEED Silver cer­ti­fi­ca­tion. Typ­i­cally, lab­o­ra­to­ries waste mas­sive amounts of energy in air han­dling. How­ever, the design­ers engi­neered ven­ti­la­tion with heat recov­ery coils to return heat from out­flow­ing air in the winter. Air changeover is raised and low­ered by a smart system that senses con­t­a­m­i­nants — if a chem­i­cal is spilled in a lab the build­ing auto­mat­i­cally starts replac­ing the air in the room.

Selux MLED was chosen for this project for its sleek pro­file and energy effi­ciency.
