The College has received funding for the STEM Complex through the Building Our Future Bond. The STEM Complex will include a new STEM Building, Biology Building, the Science Complex, and Armstrong Hall. Click here for a campus map. The STEM Complex will provide cross-disciplinary spaces that may be used by the School of Engineering and the School of Science. It will be a multi-phased project and will include the demolition of Holman Hall; the construction of a new STEM Building & Chemistry Addition; and renovations to the Biology Building, the Science Complex, and Armstrong Hall.
STEM COMPLEX. The College hired EYP Architecture & Engineering to develop a plan for the STEM Complex, including construction of new facilities and renovation of existing facilities. EYP met with members of the campus community to develop and prioritize a program aligned with the College’s Strategic Plan. A schematic design master plan for the STEM Complex was completed in February 2014.
CURRENT STATUS. Phase I – New STEM Building & Chemistry Addition is in the Construction phase. Phase II – Renovations to the Science Complex and Biology Building are in programming phase. Master Planning of renovation work at Armstrong Hall has begun.
NEW STEM BUILDING & CHEMISTRY ADDITION. The College hired EYP for this phase of the project. EYP met with members of the campus community to develop design documents for a new 89,000 gsf STEM building to be constructed on the approximate site of Holman Hall. Included in this phase of the project is a 26,300 gsf addition to the Chemistry wing of the Science Complex.
RENOVATIONS to BIOLOGY and the SCIENCE COMPLEX. The College hired EYP for this phase of the project. EYP met with members of the campus community to update the program of renovations for Biology, Physics, Math & Statistics, and Chemistry.
RENOVATIONS to ARMSTRONG HALL. The College hired EYP to consider interim renovations for Armstrong Hall. When the Mechanical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering Departments move into the new STEM Building in late 2017, the remaining Departments in the School of Engineering may gain space in Armstrong Hall.
