The Scope of Work for this project includes the renovation of Science Buildings 16 and 18, and includes a new exterior elevator, restroom renovations, interior accessibility improvements, and new interior finishes. Science labs, prep-rooms, classrooms and faculty offices will also be completely renovated, along with a new data system backbone, Smart classroom technology, and new HVAC systems and controls. New updated equipment and supplies will be provided for the science program.



This project will modernize aging science buildings on campus to provide new lab spaces with modern fixtures, equipment and infrastructure, and to renovate the facilities to meet current code and accessibility requirements. When completed, the project will contribute to the successful revitalization of the overall campus experience.
