The second phase will add 25 new teaching labs, 31 new research labs, 17 preparation labs, four large classrooms, three conference rooms, 63 faculty and staff offices and more in a space specially designed for collaborative research among faculty and students and for hands-on learning.
Project challenges include new construction to adjoin to an existing, occupied facility, located on an active college campus, and a limited staging area.
