Chemical and Life Sciences Laboratory
The Chemical and Life Sciences Laboratory was constructed in two phases. The first place, known as "Chemical and Life Sciences Laboratory A", was built as a five-story addition to the East Chemistry Building. Completed in September 1965, the building cost $5,050,000 in "state funds and matching grants". Among its innovative features were "movable metal partitions for flexibility in use". 
Groundbreaking for the second phase of the Chemical and Life Sciences Laboratory occurred on March 4, 1993. The new laboratory was designed by Perkins & Will, with Gilbane Building Company handling the general contracting on the project.
