Gustavus Adolphus College is engaged in a $70 million expansion and renovation of the Nobel Hall of Science in St. Peter, Minn. Designed by Hastings+Chivetta with Research Facilities Design (RFD) as laboratory design consultant, the project includes construction of a 74,000-sf addition on the south side housing classrooms, study spaces, and labs. On the north side, a 12,400-sf expansion will highlight student/faculty research projects and showcase the College’s signature event, The Nobel Conference. Renovation of the existing 90,900-sf building will commence when the addition is completed in July of 2019, with occupancy of the entire 177,300-sf structure expected by August of 2020. Kraus Anderson Construction began work on the project in February of 2018. LEED Silver sustainable design certification will be sought for the facility, which will feature LED light fixtures, water conservation technologies, and recycled building materials.
