Loyola University Maryland has launched a 15,000-square-foot, $12 million expansion and renovation of its Donnelly Science Center, a building that first opened more than 30 years ago. Renderings and progress photos are available at www.loyola.edu/donnelly.
The project will provide much-needed class laboratory spaces, research laboratories, offices, a conference room for the natural sciences, storage, a vivarium, a microscopy center, and a robotics laboratory. Spacious hallways connecting the building’s wings on all levels will include spaces for natural science displays and gathering areas for students and faculty in biology, chemistry, physics, computer science, and engineering.
When completed, the revamped building will offer an exciting new gateway to campus, with improved signage, landscaping, and walkways.
Construction began in May and is expected to continue until August 2011.
