Major Projects

LSA Building

This project for the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA) will renovate and revitalize approximately 24,000 gross square feet of the first floor of the Literature, Science, and the Arts Building as well as construct an addition of approximately 21,000 gross square feet that will house the LSA Internship Program and Opportunity Hub for students to explore the connection between their liberal arts education and their goals and aspirations. The program will include all relevant student services including access to internships, funding, employers and alumni to allow LSA students to engage in challenging and diverse opportunities throughout their undergraduate experience. The space will be designed to be open, welcoming, vibrant, student-focused, and encourage interaction.

BSB

A new Biological Sciences Building of approximately 300,000 gross square feet with a connection to the Life Sciences Institute (LSI) Building to increase the utilization of its dock and vivarium functions. A small renovation to LSI will also be necessary for vivarium and related support activities. The new building will house research laboratories, associated support functions, offices, classrooms, vivarium services, and the four museums listed above. The laboratories will be constructed in an open plan to allow for much greater collaboration than what can be achieved in the existing buildings, increased flexibility, space utilization and better management. The proposed site of the BSB is adjacent to LSI where both North Hall and the Museums Annex currently exist.

Camp Davis

Established in 1929, the Camp Davis Rocky Mountain Field Station is an approximately 120-acre research and teaching facility outside Jackson, Wyoming. This project for the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts is to demolish the majority of the outdated student-assigned cabins and bathhouses that are original to the camp’s construction. Thirty new modular cabins will be constructed, each approximately 300 gross square feet including a living/sleeping area and a bathroom with a shower. The camp’s Johnston Hall recreational facility that was destroyed by a tree during a recent winter storm will be replaced with a new, approximately 1,800-gross-square-foot recreational facility that will include open recreational space, restrooms, and a laundry room. The project also includes required upgrades to the electrical, water supply, and septic systems to support the new cabins and recreational hall.

William Monroe Trotter Multicultural Center

While not an LSA project, the new William Monroe Trotter Multicultural Center is a result of extensive outreach and input from a variety of constituents. Engagement included four town halls, eight focus group sessions, benchmarking to other university multicultural centers, and a survey of students. The new building is proposed to be approximately 20,000 gross square feet to accommodate replacement spaces from the current facility along with a multipurpose room that will be able to accommodate approximately 300 people in both banquet-style seating for conferences and events and an active learning configuration that will accommodate more than 100 students. Parking will be accommodated within existing parking spaces on Central Campus.
