Due to increased demand in the medical and science related fields, the expansion of the 2005 Natural Science facilities was needed. It was determined that a new science annex addition would merge with the existing Timken Natural Science facilities to create one two-story, 41,000 sf science technology center.
Providing for educational needs, research labs have been incorporated that encompass specialties in Human Anatomy and Tissue Culture, Chemistry, Physics, Occupational Therapy and Exercise Sciences. Also included in the design are additional classrooms for general instruction, as well as spaces for faculty offices that are easily accessible to students on both floors.
SHD worked closely with local contractors to fast track the project by utilizing early bid packages for site, foundation and steel.
