Construction for the Science and Learning Center is on schedule, with three weeks of steel work ahead before concrete will be poured.
The three-story building will contain 13 classrooms, 12 labs, two conference rooms, and several common spaces. The curved end of the building, facing Saint Mary’s Hall, will have an auditorium with seating for 124 people on the main floor.
The Science and Learning Center will feature a central grand staircase.

The construction crew has been installing steel beams during the past few weeks and experienced some delays due to rain, but the project remains on schedule.
“The next couple weeks are going to be key for staying on track,” said Project Superintendent Jim Blowers.
Concrete will be poured on the floors following the steel installation.
Students, faculty and staff will have the opportunity to leave their mark on the Science and Learning Center by signing one of the steel beams on Friday, April 22, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 3 to 4 p.m. at the construction site.
