SUU needed a new building with adequate lab space as its enrollment nearly doubled in recent years to more than 8,000 students. More than 20 percent of its students study in the College of Science, boasting the highest percentage of placement in post-graduate programs of any school in the state. The four-story building will add 42,350 square feet of classroom, lab, museum and office space for the biology, chemistry and nursing departments. It takes the place of the old life science building and greenhouse, which was razed in August 2009.

Price tag: $18.9 million ($13.9 million state funds, $5 million university funds)

Completion date: April 2011
