Hoar Construction has completed Phase I of a three-phase project at the new Science and Engineering Complex at The University of Alabama at Birmingham. The end result will consolidate all the basic science undergraduate and graduate studies in one complex.
Phase I includes a 138,842-square-foot building housing the biology, chemistry and physics labs and classrooms, alongside faculty and staff offices. The new facility will also house specialized workspaces, including an optics lab, research labs for student shadowing and cold growth environment rooms. Collaboration spaces were designed to enable students from various science disciplines and education levels to work together within a team-learning environment.
Project partners include Goodwyn, Mills & Cawood as the lead architect, Lord Aeck Sargent (LAS) as the lab and research spaces consultant, MBA Engineers as the structural engineers, Schoel Engineering as the civil engineers, Newcomb & Boyd as the mechanical engineers and Hyde Engineering as the electrical engineers.
