Allan L. Schuman Research and Development Campus
The facility includes two floors of state-of-the-art laboratories supporting research staff who develop and test Ecolab’s wide array of institutional cleaning products. A “Main Street” tour route brings people through the facility to observe the testing and development, while public spaces facilitate impromptu conversations. In 2009, BWBR documented the Schuman campus’ green design strategies to help Ecolab become LEED® Gold Certified – Existing Buildings.
