Twin Cities Campus | East Bank

The proposed Chemistry Undergraduate Teaching Laboratories will replace, improve, and consolidate outdated general and organic chemistry teaching laboratories and support spaces, currently in Smith and Kolthoff Halls, to Fraser Hall on the East Bank campus.

The project will remove circa-1954 building additions, renovate the remaining existing 1928 Fraser Hall, and construct a new addition with penthouse. The total project includes renovation of approximately 30,370 GSF and 91,350 GSF new construction, for a total project area of 121,720 GSF:

  • Renovated and new spaces will include: eight general chemistry, four life sciences, and six organic chemistry teaching labs with associated student collaboration and prep/storage
  • Tutoring and informal student collaboration, professional offices
  • Renovated general purpose classrooms
  • Future nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) space
  • Loading, storage, and operational support spaces
  • Existing mechanical, electrical, and life safety systems will be replaced.
