MIT - The Seat of Scientific Excellence Chooses a BLE Fire System
They say that the combined revenues of companies founded by
affiliates from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
would make the twenty-fourth largest economy in the world.
Hardly surprising perhaps, from a University faculty that has
produced 72 Nobel Laureates.
So when MIT, a world-leading center of scientific excellence,
commissioned a new Brain and Cognitive Sciences Complex
the institute selected a smoke protection system from BLE Fire
and Smoke Curtains.
The new Brain and Cognitive Sciences Complex, designed by
Charles Correa Associates, is the world's largest neuroscience
centre and a triumph of urban design and engineering. However,
the building also posed big challenges for the engineers and
The seven-story, 412,000 square foot state-of-the-art complex
houses three separate research organizations, creating a worldclass
center for brain research. In addition, there are wet and dry laboratories as well as facilities to support biology, biochemistry,
behavioral and cognitive research. There is an auditorium, cafe,
seminar rooms and a five-story day-lit atrium. Additionally, the
complex spans an active freight railway that runs through a tunnel
below the atrium level.
