Marsico Hall at the University of North Carolina

Location: Chapel Hill, North Carolina
Client: University of North Carolina

Located on the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill campus, Marsico Hall is the University’s premiere research facility, bringing together both UNC’s School of Pharmacy and the School of Medicine. This glassy 343,000-SF facility was designed and constructed to LEED Silver standards with sustainable features that include water harvesting, alternate fuel refueling stations, innovative waste water technologies, daylight harvesting, and a 28% energy savings over baseline comparisons. With an average of 932 daily users, the facility’s sustainable features will provide a positive environmental impact for UNC’s campus and the Town of Chapel Hill throughout the life of the facility.

Both preconstruction and construction services for this $163 million project were performed by Choate Construction. At its completion in 2014, the project marked the largest Construction Manager At-Risk project ever completed in the State of North Carolina.
