Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) facilities are home to basic science and engineering teaching labs; their co-location favors collaboration on interdisciplinary themes in flexible teaching labs with access to more specialized lab support rooms. The building itself can become an environmental area of study, for example, whether in the way it captures rainwater and reuses it, channels or recycles waste water from major building engineering systems, or harnesses site water integrating it into the landscape as a means to better manage storm water run-off.
