The College of Chemistry's faculty and students form a unique research community combining chemistry, chemical biology and chemical engineering into a revolutionary approach to scientific discovery. Our facilities need to be as diverse and unique as the people and ideas that they house to aid in forging breakthrough discoveries.
The global design firm HOK was retained this spring to create a feasibility study for the College's new science hub. HOK has recommended putting a new research complex, built in three phases, next to the current chemistry buildings to facilitate the least disruption to the current labs. The concept recommends a first phase of approximately 110,000 square feet spread over eight floors to be placed along Gayley Road between Pimentel and Lewis Halls.
