Construct New Science Building

Last Updated: Thursday, March 2, 2017

Status: Construction Phase

Upon arrival at the campus, the first thing one will see is the new Science Building, due to its location at the corner of Plattekill Avenue and South Manheim Boulevard. It will enhance student-faculty interactions and provide improved interdisciplinary teaching laboratories and classrooms. Academic departments that will have offices in the new building include computer science; geology; mathematics; physics and astronomy; and geography. Reflecting our campus values and environmental responsibilities, this building will be designed to qualify for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification by the U.S. Green Building Council.

The new building has opened as scheduled. The academic departments have moved in and faculty and staff are setting up their new homes. The contractor is still working on the punch list at this time. The ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled to be held on March 9th.
