Science Buildings Renovation

Building Plan

The project modernizes three functionally obsolete, 1960’s science buildings on the campus: the Biological Sciences, Physical Sciences and Animal House/Greenhouse buildings. Through creative re-planning of the existing floor plates, the renovation creates new homes for the departments of Biology, Health Sciences, Geology and Physics including new research and teaching laboratories, classrooms, and faculty and departmental offices. This renovation includes the complete replacement of all mechanical, electrical, plumbing and life safety systems seismic retrofit, and bringing the 40-year-old structures into compliance with current code and accessibility requirements.


Contracted under a CM at Risk format, the project construction bids came in under forecast. Project construction is phased to allow the continued occupancy of two buildings while the third is renovated.
