Tour of and Presentation on

Dartmouth College Life Science Center



An Integrated Design Success Story

Presentation: The new Dartmouth College Class of 1978 Life Science Center is an approximately 172,000 square foot building that includes laboratories, administrative areas, classrooms, offices, auditorium, building support and common areas.  The project was recently rewarded a LEED Platinum rating.  The design work started in 2006 and construction was completed in the summer of 2011.   Great emphasis has been put into the design to make this an energy efficient research building while providing the occupants with a safe and comfortable environment that will promote great research and learning opportunities.  The building has a very tight and well insulated building enclosure, state of the art enthalpy wheels, demand control ventilation in labs, heat recovery of science equipment and a rainwater collection system.


The presentation will be on the Integrated Design process in general and how it was implemented during the design and construction phases of the new Life Science Center.  The integrated design process is gaining recognition as a better way to accomplish good design in a timely and cooperative manner.

Speaker:         Bo Petersson is a registered professional engineer and is the Director of Engineering Services of Cornerstone Commissioning of Boxford, Massachusetts. The firm is focused on commissioning laboratory facilities, but has diversified into many other types of buildings, many of which are for critical environments.  Prior to working for Cornerstone Commissioning, Bo worked for 14 years as the Dartmouth College campus mechanical engineer.  In this role he was involved in many cutting edge projects, many of them heavily focused on energy efficient operation.  Bo’s background in facilities operations have resulted in a company-wide hands-on approach to commissioning, with a strong emphasis on fine-tuning of control system sequences. He has spoken at several industry meetings on commissioning, energy efficient buildings and chilled water operation. Bo is also a Past President of the Granite State ASHRAE chapter.
