Green Roofs : Becton Dickinson Campus Center
Main / Zamzows Blog  

This is a great example of Green Design for the masses



The Campus Center at BD (Becton Dickinson and Company), a medical technology company that serves healthcare institutions, life science researchers, clinical laboratories, industry and the general public, is a 38,500-square-foot facility that bridges and blurs the boundaries between building/landscape, indoor/outdoor, roof/earth, figure/ground, and the two local business cultures of management/production. Site design focused on sustainability and the sanctity of the open space between the main buildings known as the “Great Lawn.”

The Campus Center is located in the “Great Lawn” between the two buildings and enables the two cultures to come together for the purposes of sharing a meal. It accommodates as many as 500 people and includes a number of dining venues, multi-station servery, kitchen, retail store, coffee bar and café, bank, dry cleaner, and support areas including a loading dock and mezzanine-level mechanical areas. There are exterior dining terraces, and areas within the building that can be partitioned into intimate dining or meeting areas.
