High Point University
A new undergraduate sciences facility will comprise wet and dry teaching laboratories, research labs, classrooms, lecture halls, a tutoring center, a museum and offices. The new facility is needed to accommodate growth in majors including biology, environmental sciences, chemistry, physics, mathematics, actuarial science and more. These programs complement HPU’s new graduate programs in physician assistant studies, pharmacy and future physical therapy program. The building will also house a planetarium and may include a conservatory.
HERA reviewed a previously developed building program and worked with the University to right-size the program to avoid overbuilding. The right-sized program is saving millions of dollars.
Construction of the Sciences Building began in spring 2017, and is being constructed next to the new Congdon School of Health Sciences and Fred Wilson School of Pharmacy.
