Western Washington University Electrical Engineering Computer Science Facility
Kaiser Borsari Hall / BellinghamWA
Beginning the quest to create a carbon net neutral university campus.

Together, Mortenson and Western Washington University are creating the first carbon net neutral collegiate facility in the state of Washington. By utilizing a Mass Timber/CLT structure and designing to “smart building” standards as identified by the International Living Future Institute, Kaiser Borsari Hall will significantly advance Western’s vision to become the State’s first carbon net neutral university campus.

In addition to helping increase student capacity in electrical engineering, computer science, and energy science & technology, this new four-story, 54,000 sf facility will provide space to support new degrees connected to these disciplines. Additionally, the new teaching labs, learning research labs, active learning classrooms, collaboration space and administrative space provided by Kaiser Borsari Hall ensure that Western has teaching spaces and support structures necessary to support Western’s growing and diverse student body.
