Seattle University broke ground in May of 2019 on the $100 million Center for Science and Innovation. Designed by EYP Architecture and Engineering and Mithūn Image, the five-story, 111,000-sf facility will house the College of Science and Engineering's programs in biology, chemistry, and computer science. Supporting increasing enrollment in STEM programs, the building will feature active-learning classrooms, a 1,200-sf maker space, the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center, the 2,400-sf Center for Community Engagement, and the Microsoft Café. The facility will also provide six multi-investigator research labs for biology and chemistry, 13 teaching labs, 16 faculty offices, an anatomy and physiology lab, a tissue culture suite, mentor meeting rooms, and a university commons. The construction manager for the project is Skanska USA Building. LEED Gold sustainable design certification will be sought for the facility, which is slated for occupancy in fall of 2021. The adjacent Bannan Science and Engineering building will subsequently be renovated to accommodate programs in physics, mathematics, and engineering.
