SWAIN HALL SCIENCE ANNEX

Introduction    (Return to List)

This project involves the construction of a 40,000 sq. ft. annex to Coastal's current Science Building which was constructed in 1980 when the student population was much smaller. The proposed annex will consist of modern laboratories and much needed faculty office space.

Current laboratories for science courses are insufficient for coursework offerings and for research in complex science areas such as Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. The labs are located in converted regular classroom spaces with insufficient air handling, inadequate water and gas supplies. Additionally, current science faculty are housed in 3 separate buildings, making interdisciplinary research and student-faculty interactions problematic. The science laboratory annex will include 20-22 science laboratories, supply spaces, and 30-35 offices for faculty.

This addition is consistent with Coastal's plans to renovate the current science building back to classroom space, and construct a new state-of-the-art science building in the future to integrate all science instruction, including marine science and computer science now in remote locations to the main campus.
