Introduction    (Return to List)

This project involves the construction of a 40,000 sq. ft. second annex to Coastal's current Science Building which was constructed in 1980. The proposed annex will consist of an estimated forty faculty offices, eight teaching labs for (Introductory Biology and Introductory Marine Science), four sixty seat classrooms, two forty-five seat classrooms, and one Ecology teaching lab and six small labs for Ecology research.

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.
