A feasibility study and programming are being provided for renovation options for the existing Physical Sciences Building to accommodate new programs, including mathematics, in spaces to be vacated by Biology, Chemistry, and Physics upon their move into the new laboratory building. The feasibility/programming study also included renovation options for the Health Sciences Building.


The laboratory building was designed to achieve a minimum of LEED Silver certification.
