New Sciences Building Under Construction

 

Baylor University, Waco, TX, in conjunction with HarleyEllis, ARAMARK Facility Services-CPM, and The BECK Group, broke ground on the new 500,000-square-foot Baylor Sciences Building in mid-May. The $103 million facility represents the largest building project in the university’s 157-year history.

Located adjacent to the campus’ main entrance, the new Sciences Building will create a geographic and architectural hub for the campus. The four-story structure reflects the campus’ historic Georgian architecture. Comprised of three wings, the facility will house:

  • Life sciences (biology, neuroscience, and psychology).
  • Physical sciences (physics, chemistry, and geology).
  • Five multi-disciplinary research/education centers (enveloping prehealth education, molecular biosciences, drug discovery, reservoir and water studies, and scientific analysis and computer).

Construction of the Baylor Sciences Building represents a key academic imperative of Baylor 2012, a 10-year vision that calls for Baylor University to enter the top tier of American universities over the next decade. “Science education is essential to our vision and mission as a university committed to academic excellence and Christian faith,” says Baylor President Robert B. Sloan Jr. “This innovative facility will unite under one roof the foundational sciences and multi-disciplinary centers and will challenge the way we prepare students in the sciences at Baylor. The Baylor Sciences Building will stand as a milestone in science education that will have few, if any, peers nationally.”

 

Occupancy is scheduled for fall 2004.
