304-305 Tanana Loop
Nestled between the Duckering and Bunnell buildings, the new engineering facility will provide a modern space for learning and discovery. The six-story building will feature a 48-foot high-bay area for tall projects, a strong floor for testing extremely heavy items, a cold room and 40 new laboratories. The construction will create 119,000 square feet of new space and renovate about 30,000 square feet of space in the Duckering Building.
Glass and steel will clad the new building’s exterior. It will meet the silver standard set by the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program.
Initially, the building was expected to be finished by fall 2015. However, funding has not been sufficient, and work on the facility was due to shut down in August 2015, after completion of upgrades in Schaible Auditorium and a connector between the Duckering and Bunnell buildings.
