This study presents the many building systems that make up the Building for Environmental Research & Teaching (BERT) at Brown University. Formerly known as the Hunter Lab, it was fully renovated and repurposed in 2013 to become a center for cross-disciplinary teaching, research and engagement in the environmental sciences.

The BERT includes many biolabs and growth chambers, research rooms, and a Plant Environmental Center. Its new greenhouse, located on top of the building, opened in 2014. It has six rooms with irrigation and computer-controlled temperature and lighting, which support living systems and advanced botanical research.
