Giles Science Building Renovation

This project involved the complete interior renovation of four floors of a 5-story science building that was built in 1997. The project displaced, repurposed, relocated and enlarged existing classrooms, offices, and laboratories to accommodate 154 more biology and chemistry laboratory stations— a critical need of the college. Laboratories include biology, microbiology, physiology, botany/zoology, physics, and general flex labs. Other project highlights include:

  • New laboratory exhaust fans in chemistry labs
  • Existing offices on second floor converted into teaching labs
  • Roof replacement and new sprinkler system throughout building
  • Chemical storage room relocated from the fourth floor to the basement
