University of Hawai’i at Mānoa Constructs Life Sciences Building

The University of Hawai’i at Mānoa will begin construction in late 2017 on the $50 million Life Sciences Building. Designed to promote interdisciplinary collaboration, the four-story, 45,000-sf facility will provide the College of Natural Sciences with classrooms, teaching and research laboratories, lab support spaces, and offices. Accommodating the departments of biology, microbiology, and botany, the building will also house the Pacific Biosciences Research Center and the Biological Electron Microscope Facility. LEED sustainable design certification will be sought for the facility, which will be constructed using an integrated design-build delivery process. The university is also utilizing eBuilder, an online project management system. Occupancy is expected in fall of 2019.
