The Science and Engineering Building brought over 235,000 square feet of new research and instruction space to the University of Alabama’s campus. Final design included extensive lab space as well as a complex BSL-3 Lab. The audio-video infrastructure allows this building to be a truly collaborative learning environment reflective of a modern life science education facility.
The building includes a U-shaped Teaching Wing with extensive laboratory space and classrooms as well as a Research Wing consisting of laboratories to accommodate long-term research projects. The state-of-the art teaching and research space replaces aging facilities in older buildings, such as Lloyd Hall and the Biology Building. The facility emphasizes interdisciplinary teaching as it houses faculty from both the College of Arts & Sciences and the College of Engineering.
