The 51,244 square foot, three-floor building will house 26 modern laboratory spaces for academic programs in astronomy, biology, chemistry, geology, marine science, and physics. The new building will be Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified and will include many sustainable design features, including a courtyard with a themed demonstration garden planted over an underground element to provide on-site retention of storm water, reducing the impact on the campus storm water system.
Cattrac's construction services included excavation and site preparation for the new Science Building which is scheduled to open in 2016.
