Earlham College has teamed with Boora Architects of Portland, Oregon to create a science complex that will highlight the advanced scientific research of faculty and students. In an effort to demonstrate Earlham’s commitment to sustainability, all phases of the project will pursue LEED Certifications of Silver or above.
This three phase development began construction in 2012 with a complete renovation of Stanley Hall. The renovation was completed in time for the Fall 2013 Semester, and the building was dedicated on October 18, 2013.
The Center for Science and Technology is a 42,000 square foot addition that is providing a new home for Physics, Math and Computer Sciences as well as the new Science Center for Integrated Learning. The building was dedicated on October 30, 2015.
Phase III of the Science Complex will create a new homes for the Joseph Moore Museum and the Geology Department. Additional features will include a large lecture hall and rooftop research areas.
Phase III will complete the college's science facilities, supporting science research and outreach through the Joseph Moore Museum, and providing a new home for the geology department, a large lecture hall, and an innovative set of rooftop research areas. While the need for Phase III facilities is perceived as less urgent than for the Phase II facilities, their completion is no less important to the science division's success.
The new facilities will:
• Showcase the Joseph Moore Museum as a point of on-campus and community-wide connection
• Provide a large lecture hall for use by all divisions of the campus
• Enable all students to access rooftop research areas
• Facilitate 21st century geology research and access to field equipment.
