Sciences Building Construction
Facilities & Economic Development - The University of Texas at Dallas
These photos show the week-by-week progress in the construction of our Sciences Building, which houses the Department of Physics and much of the William B. Hanson Center for Space Studies. The 187,000-square-foot facility holds 21 labs, a dozen classrooms, offices, one 300-seat and two 150-seat lecture halls and an open green courtyard. Laboratories have been outfitted for research and instruction in cryogenics, optics, magnetism and electricity. A special large collaboration space allows for research and classroom areas to be joined together, and the facility’s L-shaped design gives students the opportunity to observe science in action as they pass ground-floor labs.
