Building for the Next Generation
An extensive renovation of two conjoined science buildings originally constructed in 1966 and 1980. The new science complex totals 144,900 SF. To conserve valuable classroom space within the facility, during construction a 22-foot high, 12,752 SF penthouse steel structure was added to the roof level of the facility to house all new mechanical equipment. A photovoltaic system was installed on the main roof and on the penthouse roof. The structure consisted of concrete beams and columns with precast double T’s. The science complex was designed to facilitate a hands-on, interactive method of teaching. The new spaces provide a higher level of flexibility and the labs include side areas for students to work on write-ups. T-research labs function as teaching spaces during the day and research areas at night. This newly renovated building complies with all current ADA requirements and is LEED Gold Certification.
