The Indiana University of Pennsylvania will spend $90 million on construction of a new building along Oakland Avenue for the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, The Indiana Gazette Online reported.
The building, designed by Pittsburgh-based architectural firm Perfido, Weiskopf, Wagstaff & Goettel, will cover more than 100,000 sq. ft., including 51,635 sq. ft. for laboratory and specialty uses and 16,207 sq. ft. for lab support.
The university is expected to send the project out for bids by the end of 2019.
Construction of four-story building is expected to take 30 months. The university wants the building to be constructed to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) silver standards.
