Lamar University Science & Technology Building
The new 78,000 SF Science & Technology building houses research spaces for biology, chemistry, cellular/molecular biology, biochemistry, computation, and engineering. An innovation space will provide the necessary capabilities to build and prototype special design and interdisciplinary research projects, focused on energy, sustainability, medical devices, and global health at the undergraduate and graduate level.
This project also includes the expansion of the existing Central Plant building. This expansion was necessary in order to house a new 800 ton water cooled chiller, chilled water pumps, and new electrical switchgear. The new electrical switchgear is required to provide power to new HVAC equipment and the Science & Technology Building.
Project Completion: 2019
Project Budget: Final construction cost: $42,526,120 for Science & Technology Building and $4,986,880 for Central Plant.
