Work will be complete in late 2020. Design is complete for new programs that will be housed on floors five and six. This work is due to be complete in spring 2021.
Science 2 Renovation, Phase 1
New windows are in place on the physics wing and tower. Exterior metal panel installation is ongoing. A new roof is being installed on the physics wing and mechanical rough-in work is progressing throughout the space. Metal studs for walls are in active construction. The contractor is also doing some prep work for window replacements in the chemistry wing, due to take place in the summer.
The project will create new undergraduate laboratories, classrooms and restrooms. The building exterior will take on an updated look with new windows and exterior metal paneling that will greatly improve energy efficiency.
The exterior work extends to the Science 2 tower. Renovation of the tower's interior is in design. Tower work will include gutting spaces on floors three through eight with complete renovation of that space. A number of critical maintenance items will be addressed, including asbestos abatement and new mechanical, electrical, plumbing and HVAC systems.
Engineering Building Renovation, Phases 4 and 5

The scope of the project is similar to renovations that took place on the east side of Science 4, with renovation of office space, laboratories and support space. Work is anticipated to be complete in spring 2021.
Rehab Science Greenhouses
This critical maintenance project will reorganize the research layout of the greenhouses and create a new entrance. Window glazing panels/system will be replaced along with mechanical components including venting, cooling and water distribution systems. Work is expected to begin in spring 2020 and take about a year to complete.
Library third-floor renovations
This project entails a complete gut and renovation of the Library South third floor, including asbestos abatement and installation of new flooring, ceilings and lighting. Mechanical systems serving the area will be replaced/upgraded including air handlers and chiller. The energy management system will also be upgraded so energy systems can be better managed and costs reduced. The third floor will be connected to the existing south stair tower. This project is currently in the planning/design phase. Project completion is anticipated in fall 2024.
