MTLSS Research Complex

C7A is designing the new 75,000 GSF Marine Technology and Life Sciences Seawater (MTLSS) Research Building for the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science at the University of Miami. This unique facility, designed to achieve LEED Gold certification, will serve as a new gateway to the campus and is the cornerstone for the entire RSMAS master plan (also completed by C7A). It will house two distinct but interconnected components: the Marine Life Science Center and the SUrge-STructure-Atmosphere INteraction (SUSTAIN) research facility. The SUSTAIN lab will house two state of the art wave and wind tanks, which will allow the modeling of hurricane conditions, while also allowing researchers to model currents, winds, subsurface conditions, and other environmental conditions.
