PRINCETON, N.J. (AP) — Princeton University has unveiled its newest building.

The Ivy League school held a media tour Wednesday for the nearly completed Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment. It has taken more than three years to build and contains 129,000-square-feet of labs, offices, instructional spaces, meetings areas and a lecture hall

University officials say the center's goal is to preserve the planet through education and research on energy-related environmental issues and sustainable energy technologies such as batteries, building design, solar cells, and biofuels.

Staff and faculty are scheduled to move into the building within the next few weeks.

The school declined to disclose Wednesday how much it cost to build the center.
