Bethel University Science Building


Project Description

This renovation and addition project aims to foster teacher-student interaction, learning opportunities, tutoring resources and research programs. The project consisted of labs for Bio-Chemistry, Chemistry, Biology, Robotics, Fluid Technologies and Flex Labs designed to accommodate multiple disciplines. All labs were designed for students and staff to cross collaborate via interconnected doorways without having to go into the main corridor. Open spaces in the main corridor – with appropriate furniture and technology – invite teams of students to continue to collaborate outside of the labs. The three-story addition is designed to seamlessly blend with existing campus buildings, serving as both a modern and timeless addition to the University. The Science Building project was completed in two phases. Also worth noting is that the COVID-19 pandemic hit with one-third of the project left to complete. In spite of this unexpected disruption, the McGough project team was able to ensure on-time completion.
