Academic East Building – Bucknell University

Academic East Building – Bucknell University

Academic East, which opened for classes in August of 2019 is a center for high-tech innovation with 25 labs housing cutting-edge research equipment found in very few places in the world.

Graham supplied over 140 Series S6500 awning and fixed windows with high performance low-e tempered glass. These large architectural grade windows allowed plenty of daylight for the large open spaces while minimizing energy losses.

Standing behind Bertrand Library and next to Academic West, the 78,000-square-foot Academic East nearly doubles the lab space available for the College of Engineering and provides offices, labs, classrooms and research spaces for the Department of Education.
