MBP provided commissioning services for this new building from design through occupancy phases. The new 180,000-square-foot building for the Volgenau School of Information Technology and Engineering contains 80,000 square feet of academic space including classrooms and administrative offices and 80,000 square feet of research space and laboratories. An additional 20,000 square feet of space is allocated for a collaborative research environment between the University and the private sector. The five-story Academic VI/Research II Building was constructed using the design-build delivery method and is the largest academic building at George Mason University that features a brick and cast-stone façade. Positioned at a prominent site near the main campus entrance, visitors to the building and the campus are greeted by the structure’s four-story glass atrium. This building, the first LEED certified building on the George Mason University Fairfax campus, is LEED Gold certified.

“In comparison to your competitors, your work product is exceptional. MBP has set the bar for other commissioning providers to follow. I’m now using MBP’s commissioning product as the basis for what to expect from other commissioning providers.”
