Pierce Hall Renovation


Pierce Hall

Vision

Pierce Hall is being renovated to improve the quality of instructional and research environments, address space deficiencies, and help position the campus to achieve its strategic goals. The building systems in Pierce Hall are no longer adequate to support the contemporary teaching and research needs of the building’s occupants. Improvements to these building systems and selective interior renovations will extend the useful life of the existing facility to support wet laboratory based instructional programs and low to medium-intensity research laboratories. Additional instructional student laboratory stations and a new general assignment seminar room will be provided via renovation that will directly support science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) programs.

 

The projects will renovate the North Wing and the first floor of the Center Wing to create new instructional laboratories and improve research laboratories in a core campus location. Former research laboratories will be converted into instructional laboratories on the first and second floors of the north wing, and existing research laboratories located on the third floor will be modernized. Four antiquated instructional laboratories in the Center Wing will also be renovated and other spaces converted to instructional laboratory support space. A new general assignment seminar room will be created in the South Wing.

 

The construction is funded by two separate projects, one state-funded and one campus-funded, however they are being constructed concurrently.
