Science Building Plans Under Way

BY ANN R. BROWN

The college has retained Cannon Design to develop plans for renovating the Science Building. Cannon was ranked among the top “global giants” by World Architecture in 2005 and fourth overall in design for education. The Grand Island–based firm will solicit opinions from faculty, staff, and students—through a committee chaired by Kimberly Bagley, associate professor of chemistry—on current and future physical-plant needs for the sciences on campus.

The final plan, which could involve the development of additional space as well as renovations to the existing building, should be completed in one year. The State University Construction Fund has slated $50 million for the entire project over two funding cycles.

The Science Building has had no significant renovation since it was constructed in 1964 and needs major upgrades to its systems. The project goal is a facility with flexible and attractive space for teaching and conducting faculty and student research, as well as contemporary mechanical systems.
