Widstoe Chemistry Building Eccles Science Learning Center

Utah State University’s desire for this project was to replace the existing outdated Widstoe Hall Chemistry Building with a safe, functional, state-of-the-art Science Learning Center for teaching, assembly, and receptions that would be a “show piece place.” The scope of work included an intricate orchestration of construction phasing around nearby buildings and on-going research and teaching lab work inside the building.
The new Widstoe Hall provides for teaching and research on four floors, connected by an atrium to the Eccles Science Learning Center, which includes a 500-seat auditorium, two 160-seat lecture rooms/special classrooms and an office complex for the College of Science. The new chemistry facility provides a safer, more functional environment. The design team met the challenge to improve on the State’s energy conservation model by 50%.
