Concordia University of Nebraska opened the $24.5 million Dunklau Center for Science, Math and Business in November of 2019 in Seward. Comprising 58,000 sf of new construction and 28,000 sf of renovated space, the 86,000-sf facility accommodates programs in biology, chemistry, physics, environmental science, agricultural science, mathematics, business, and computer science. Designed by Sinclair Hille Architects to promote interaction and put science on display, the flexible building features the 1,000-sf Co-Lab, a collaborative meeting and event space that extends above the campus quad. The Dunklau Center includes a 96-seat lecture hall, teaching and research labs, classrooms, study spaces, faculty offices, conference rooms, a greenhouse, a recording studio, and a gross anatomy lab. General contractor JE Dunn broke ground on the project in April of 2018.
