R. V. Truitt Laboratory Project

Opening in May 2016


The new R.V. Truitt Building program includes the relocation of key shared mechanical components to a new attached support building and the demolition of the existing Truitt facility and the construction of a new seawater laboratory.  This new research laboratory will enable CBL to conduct environmental sustainability research essential to the state and nation.

The new facility will complement the existing facilities on campus by providing necessary laboratories, offices and modular wet laboratories for research work.  The State of Maryland is taking a leading role in supporting climate change and environmental sustainability research, and this research facility can fill a unique and critical role in the State’s efforts.
The new R.V. Truitt Laboratory Building has been designed to reach LEED Gold standards set by the US Green Building Council.
