The Washington State University Board of Regents approved the construction of three capital projects, including a new $52.8 million laboratory building, during its meeting at the WSU Vancouver campus Friday.
The regents unanimously voted for the construction of the Clean Technology Laboratory Building, an interdisciplinary facility that will house science and engineering programs on the Pullman campus. The 96,000-square-foot building will be used to study technologies in sustainable materials, atmospheric research and water quality.
The gravel parking lot south of Grimes Way, immediately west of the Agronomy Seed House, has been selected as the site for the building. The board approved the building’s design in May 2012, and construction is expected to be completed in summer 2015.
