Carol Martin Gatton College of Business and Economics

Project Schedule: Through - May 2016
The existing four story facility was originally built in 1963. In 1991, a three story classroom wing was added. The original building primarily houses office and administrative space while the 1991 addition houses nearly all the teaching/classroom space. The facility has been well maintained but as with most facilities of its age, some of the basic mechanical and electrical components have reached the end of their useful lives.

Undergraduate and graduate students spend a significant amount of time in the facility learning the areas of biology, chemistry and physics and conducting research. The new 263,000-square-foot Academic Science Building will be equipped with modern and technology-rich classroom and laboratory space. It is being constructed on the site where Donovan Residence Hall currently sites.

Utility upgrades and construction of the new Academic Science Building will require portions of Washington Avenue and Rose Street to close for an extended period of time.
