The proposed project includes approximately 132,000 gross square feet of biology, chemistry/biochemistry research and instructional space, including wet and dry laboratories and equipment rooms, an auditorium and a Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) facility.

The building would include a new service and fire access road connecting the proposed building site to Scholar’s Drive south.

Site improvements also include enhancements to Urey Green.

The Biological and Physical Sciences Building will provide much needed research and instructional laboratories to support the Division of Biological Sciences and Division of Physical Sciences, Departments of Chemistry and Biochemistry. The proposed project would provide opportunities for expanded research and teaching as well as opportunities for collaboration with chemistry and biochemistry.
