RRTL Architects

ST. CLOUD - St. Cloud State University will soon be at the forefront of science and engineering research.

The $45 million Integrated Science and Engineering Laboratory Facility is under construction now and is expected to be ready for classes in the fall of 2013.

Dean of the College of Science and Engineering David DeGroote was on WJON with Bob Hughes this (Monday) morning.  He says the ISELF building will help the University strengthen their partnerships with companies like Microbiologics.

SCSU President Earl Potter says the State Legislature and the Governor funded the project in the bonding bill this summer because it’s an important project for the entire state.

In terms of money, ISELF will be the largest single construction project in the history of MnSCU.  The 100,000 square-foot research and teaching facility will be built on the site of the current 801 building.

It’s the final phase of a three-part Science Initiative, which included the $14.5 million Wick Science Building and the $13.6 million renovation of Brown Hall — both of those projects were completed in 2009.
