George Mason University - Discovery Hall

Location: Manassas, VA
Owner: George Mason University
Architect: Tobey + Davis Architects
Delivery: Design/Bid/Build

The George Mason University Building was designed by Tobey + Davis Architects, located in Reston, Virginia. This impressive 90,000 SF, $14.5 million facility was successfully constructed in a fast-paced, 13-month time frame.  The facility construction consists of a three-story Academic Building with classrooms, lecture halls, and offices designated for staff members. In addition, the project was furnished with an auditorium, as well as high-tech electronic and biological wet laboratories, respectively, which are located on the second level.

The structural integrity of the building consists of a concrete frame, which is clad with an attractive brick veneer façade. To complete the exterior cosmetics of the building, aluminum windows, a glazed curtain wall system, and numerous metal panels have been placed.

Sharing the lab space within the GMU Academic Building II is ATCC, a global nonprofit bioresource center, which provides biological products and information to entities around the world. Discovery Hall also houses George Mason’s School of Computational Sciences (SCS). A model for integrating basic and applied research in a University setting, SCS is developing new tools for the analysis of genomic and molecular biological data.
