Demonstrating its energy-efficiency and daylight-focused design, the project is pursuing LEED® Silver certification through the U.S. Green Building Council.

The Seattle offices of Zimmer Gunsul Frasca Architects LLP (ZGF) designed the NanoES as the second phase of a 168,000-square-foot complex located at the center of the UW Seattle-based campus. The first phase, the 90,000-square-foot Molecular Engineering and Sciences Building, was completed in 2012.
