Construction of the University of Wyoming’s Science Initiative building is underway, and people can keep up on the project’s progress through a public webcam.
A view of the construction site at the corner of Ninth and Lewis streets, at the northwest end of the UW campus, is available at https://app.truelook.com/?u=gu1574116477. The construction manager is GE Johnson Construction, based in Jackson.
The $100 million Science Initiative building will create a unique research and teaching environment, featuring flexible laboratories for life science research groups; the Center for Advanced Scientific Instrumentation; state-of-the-art greenhouses for plant research; a 200-seat active-learning classroom; and student collaboration areas to foster science innovation. The project is expected to be completed in early 2021.
UW’s Science Initiative aims to enable world-class research and education in pillars of Wyoming’s present and future economy. Through life and data sciences research that impacts areas including mineral extraction, agriculture, tourism, resource management and high technology, the initiative will have direct economic impact through efficient translation of ideas to the marketplace.
