IN THE PRESS: “University of Iowa Building Uses Thermally Active “Bubble Deck” Slab

"The Visual Arts Building (VAB) at the University of Iowa is a marvel of both aesthetic design and mechanical engineering. Six years in the making and completed in October 2016, the award-winning, 126,000-square-foot structure blends the artistry of Steven Holl Architects (New York) with innovative mechanical systems that integrate with Holl’s aesthetics while meeting the numerous industrial-like requirements of this challenging space.

For this project performance, the university earned an incentive payment of more than $550,000 for the building, which recently achieved LEED® Gold certification."
