Environment and Natural Resources Building

Body: 

The initial building of the Environmental Science Complex creates a gateway to the campus. It responds to the needs of its users, as well as to its desert environment. It features energy and resource conserving measures based in part on historical and traditional native architecture. ENRB comprises facilities for teaching and research, computers, conferences/symposia, community interaction, retail, and administration. The building houses both university departments and US government agencies as a cooperative center for research, and service (USGS, National Weather Service, others).
