Sierra Nevada Science Center

Sierra Nevada College & UC Davis
Incline Village, CA 

The Tahoe Center houses several major programs within three stores: Sierra Nevada College’s science program (teaching laboratories and classrooms), UC Davis research laboratories (Tahoe Environmental Research Center) and public education center, and office space for the Desert Research Institute and University of Nevada, Reno’s Academy for the Environment.  Designed to meet LEED Platinum certification, upon opening was only the second such building so ranked in the Univ. of California system, the ninth in California and the very first in Nevada. It is truly a state-of-the-art laboratory, education center and demonstration project uniquely designed as a prime example of the very work it undertakes to promote. MCH provided full-scope acoustical consulting and initial AV planning services.
