Science Center Build Out

Posted by: Jennifer Stevens | March 20, 2014 | No Comment |


Construction in the New Science Center began in January 2013. The build out of the New School of Science and Mathematics includes the construction, furnishing, and outfitting of eight teaching labs, six research labs, two classrooms, twenty six offices and supporting spaces for the Geology Department. The area involved is approximately 19,000 square feet. The construction is Phase II of a two-part project. Phase I included the construction of the New School of Science and Mathematics building and offices, labs, and classrooms, which was completed in 2010.


The newly built out space includes all support systems such as heating and air conditioning, laboratory casework tables, hoods, lab air, electrical power and lighting, network cabling and connections, projectors, screens, computers, and monitors. The new spaces will significantly improve the current facilities that are being moved from Rita Hollings Science Center and enhance both teaching and research.

Construction on the second floor wrapped up just before Christmas. Furniture and IT components were installed during the holiday break 2013-2014. Occupancy and use of the newly completed space began in the spring semester 2014.
