WBRC Architects • Engineers employs 60 architects, engineers, and design professionals in three offices.

Professional Disciplines ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN While WBRC’s architectural designs have been recognized by a long list of thirdparty accolades, the best “award” is a great space that occupants love. Creating such spaces require a combination of listening skills, creative talent, and technical acumen. WBRC architects are trained and skilled in BIM (building information modeling), Sketch Up, the Adobe products suite, Autodesk 3ds MaxDesign, and Revit. When a project warrants it, WBRC also regularly partners with other A/E professionals to create branded and niche facility solutions. SITE/CIVIL ENGINEERING WBRC’s site and civil engineering team brings ingenuity, practicality, and diverse expertise to its work, producing 6 WBRC ARCHITECTS • ENGINEERS

ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING WBRC A/E’s electrical engineering team incorporates innovative and energyefficient solutions for a wide range of systems including power, electrical distribution, fire alarm, security, lighting, and computer data systems.

MECHANICAL ENGINEERING Energy conservation, occupant comfort, indoor air quality, noise abatement, and acoustic control are among the many challenges tackled by WBRC’s

INTERIOR DESIGN A well-designed interior will enhance everything from safety to productivity to the perceived value of your brand. WBRC’s interior design team is

experienced with space planning across many sectors, allowing us to “cross-pollinate” new ideas and best practices. The firm’s interior design team is also well-versed in construction documentation, finish material and color selection, and specification of furniture, fixtures, equipment and accessories. LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE Landscape architecture is critical to communicating a client’s presence in the fabric of a community. WBRC’s approach to landscape architecture combines the owner’s vision, site history, and current context to create a unique presence— in a manner that also factors in practicalities from longterm horticultural growth patterns to ADA compliance to wayfinding.

Expanding Our Reach In 2002, firm principal Doug Whitney and a small crew ventured south to open WBRC’s first branch office, near Sarasota, Florida. WBRC’s Florida team quickly became part of the culture of Lakewood Ranch, a new planned community that Whitney and his team helped put on the map. Many of the retail and office fit-outs along Lakewood Ranch’s charming Main Street (top right) were and continue to be designed by WBRC. A few years later, WBRC opened a second branch office in Portland, Maine, and has since worked on signature projects including Cumberland County Civic Center renovations, and two major Portland school projects, including Ocean Avenue Elementary School (above). As Maine’s closest full-service A/E firm to Atlantic, Canada, WBRC has also worked across the border on projects, including the Diamond Jubilee Terminal in Saint John, New Brunswick (right).

Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences, Phase 1 - 3 Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences | Boothbay, Maine The Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences campus consists of three interconnected science and education buildings, along with a shorefront facility and dock. This marks the first time that all of Bigelow’s science operations have been housed in a single building complex. The $31.8-million Phase 1 campus project was made possible by a combination of State and Federal grants, private financing, and private donations. Future phases of the project, including a research building, administrative and educational facilities, and housing for visiting researchers, are indicated in yellow.

A key feature of the campus is the buildings’ unique daylighting design. The solar orientation of the three research wings, combined with open courtyards between each wing, helps to maximize natural light in the building, creating a comfortable and energy-efficient work environment. Elements, such as window shading, daylight

responsive lighting controls and dimmable ballasts, lowered the power requirements for lighting and allowed nearly all interior spaces to take full advantage of natural light and wonderful views of Bigelow’s coastal campus. Year-round energy recovery and other high-efficiency equipment provide an outstanding 54 percent energy cost savings over a conventional design. The campus and building design was achieved through a collaborative design effort between the Bigelow Laboratory leadership and an integrated design and construction team that included WBRC Architects/ Engineers, Architects and Engineers of Record, and Perkins+Will, Design Architects of Boston, Mass., and Consigli Construction Co., Inc. of Portland, Maine.

The Jackson Laboratory | Bar Harbor, ME Central to The Jackson Laboratory’s mission is its work in the breeding and management of colonies of mice, both for its own research and to supply other research institutions and laboratories. Since mice and humans share 95% of their genes, mice are an effective model for human diseases and treatment. In order to supply the worldwide research community with a greater diversity of mouse strain models, the lab houses various production facilities to serve the research community. The Jackson Laboratory’s Building 51 addresses the laboratory’s growing demand for mouse production by adding a new 25,000 SF animal production facility comprising animal rooms, a clean process room and a second floor office space to support animal production operations and approximately 20,000 SF of renovations in adjacent buildings. All ongoing operations were required to remain in service during project construction. Building 64 is a new Importation and Isolation Facility for The Jackson Laboratory at their main campus in Bar Harbor. The facility is a three-story above grade structure with a full basement and expandable for future additions. The Lower Level below grade provides the mechanical and electrical services as well as the Cryogenic Repository for mice embryo and sperm within 20 Liquid Nitrogen containers. The first floor consists of Autoclave for sterilization of all outgoing materials as well as a large Animal Holding Room and Isolation Room for specimens being received. The second floor consists of an In Vitro Fertilization Laboratory, support lab spaces and PEELs for preparation to enter laboratories. The third floor is an unfinished shell space for future research and laboratory operations. Building 64 was designed in association with RMW Architecture and Interiors in Sacramento, CA.

FEATURED PROJECT

Advanced Structure and Composites Center

Offshore Wind Laboratory | Orono, ME UMaine’s Advanced Structures and Composites Center is one of the U.S.’s most innovative programs, and WBRC was called upon to shepherd its multi-phase expansion. The most recent addition to this project is the Offshore Wind Laboratory. This 37,000 SF facility includes “super sized” lab space designed for testing wind turbine blades and their components. The design for this R&D project epitomizes “form follows function.” The challenge was to design a facility around the structural testing of immense wind turbine blades, up to 230 feet long, which would be tested within the space. Design options were limited by a tight campus footprint and the addition could not extend beyond the height of the original steel structure. The building also needed to be an example of sustainable design, given the facility’s mission of advancing alternative energy. The architecture of the facility’s had to accommodate both static and fatigue structural testing, measuring a blade’s capacity to withstand wind and wave pressure both vertically and horizontally. One early challenge was to create a test stand where these mammoth blades could be mounted. The building’s design also had to accommodate the movement that the blades would make while being tested – oscillating as much as 20 feet above and below the blades’ center axis when tested horizontally, and 58 feet when tested vertically. Sustainable design features include a 3,400 SF wall of transpired solar collectors along the long, east-west axis of the building, delivering preheated air to the heating system. Sixty high-bay skylights provide natural diffused daylight to reduce glare and shadow lines in lab areas, and seven light tunnels bring light to interior core spaces. Other sustainable aspects include low-flow fixtures; heat reclaim off hydraulic pumps; low-VOC sealants and materials; use of FSC-certified wood; and light sensors. The concrete in the test stand and throughout the building consisted of 40% fly ash, and over 95% of construction waste was recycled. The facility was awarded Gold LEED Certification. 48 WBRC ARCHITECTS • ENGINEERS
