Design of Laboratory Building funded under the 12th National Plan. This premier institute supports long range Plasma Physics research in India. The lab building has four different labs spread over 3 double height levels and a common 21m high-bay area with a crane. The building accommodates complex utilities and services. Substantial construction time on this fast track project was saved by implementing a pre-fabricated steel and concrete composite design. The new age material creates a modern aesthetic. A hint of red stone cladding evokes a connection to the architectural language of the existing campus. The design allows for ample natural light while cutting out glare. Adequate provisions are made to accommodate future utility requirements.
