Project Description

This project will construct a new facility to expand and relocate the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences. The project also includes razing the southeast wing of Seashore Hall, allowing for construction of the new building, which will provide a direct connection to Spence Labs. The remainder of Seashore Hall will be taken down at a later date. 

The new building will be comprised of a mix of offices, dry laboratories, collaboration space, classrooms and student work areas. The Lower Level and Ground Level are composed of open commons spaces, classrooms and administration offices. The upper four stories contain faculty offices, dry laboratories, and open commons space.
