As part of the Campaign for IIT, and thanks to the generosity of several donors, the college will be able to start on the renovation of Life Sciences.
We have engaged LCM Architects to do the design and Pepper Construction to manage the construction project. The plans you see here have emerged from a series of discussions between the architects and IIT staff, including the chairs of Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
Our initial plans are to both make repairs of the aging building and to create attractive, flexible new spaces to promote 21st century learning and student-faculty collaboration. Specifically, Phase 1 will involve remediation of the HVAC system and exterior of the building, and will transform first floor labs, classrooms, new entrances and common areas, and exhibit and display spaces, with the guiding principle of “students first”—putting their needs first to create open, engaging spaces that will support their education and inspire their work.
We hope that substantial work will be able to be carried out in Summer 2014, finished in time for the Fall 2014 semester.
