Square Footage 11,000
Location Savannah, GA
Skidway's state-of-the-art Marine & Coastal Science Research & Instructional Center allows the institute to expand its research in several areas, such as the development of new technologies associated with ocean observation systems; discovering the diversity of species and their interactions in the marine environment, and the assessment of factors affecting the environmental health and integrity of Georgia’s coastal zone.

The facility includes private office space, work centers, two chemistry laboratories, three general labs, biology lab, flow cytometry lab, special lab, clean room, mechanical room, and multi-use space for instruction, collaboration, and informational seminars.The LEED Gold certified MSRIC’s environmentally friendly design includes mechanical systems to provide flexible environmental controls, such as temperature, humidity, air pressure, and quality lighting.

Organic courtyard, sidewalk, and roof materials, abundant interior natural light, six-inch foam insulation, energy efficient windows, solar hot water heating system, and a 1,000 gallon cistern to capture rainwater for various uses are just a few of the “green” elements. The building is clad in a combination of framed cement fiber board panels and durable lap siding that is resistant to hurricanes, hail, insects, decay and wildfires.
