The University of Texas at Dallas is constructing the $101 million Science Building to provide leading-edge teaching and research spaces for the departments of physics, mathematics, and chemistry. Designed by Stantec, the 186,000-sf collaborative facility will feature 12 instructional laboratories, a large learning venue with integrated classroom and lab functions, and specialized suites for optics, acoustics, and cryogenics. The five-story building will include a 150-seat lecture hall, a 300-seat lecture hall, conventional classrooms, faculty and administrative offices, support areas, and shell space to accommodate future expansion. The structure will also house the William B. Hanson Center for Space Sciences and the UTeach program. The project team includes architect and MEPF engineer Stantec, construction manager Linbeck, structural engineer Datum Engineers, civil engineer Charles Gojer & Associates, technology engineer Datacom Design Group, and landscape architect Coleman & Associates. Ground was broken on the facility in February of 2018 and occupancy is expected in fall of 2020.
