Dakota State University | Haberger Science Center Renovation
Built in 1971, this renovation required careful evaluation of all existing conditions. Phased construction dictated use of shared existing labs, while construction was on-going in 3/4 of space in the building. Relocation of departmental ofﬁces and a complete update for all mechanical, electrical and plumbing system’s were also required.
The project updated Microbiology, Biology, Physics and Chemistry Labs, Science support spaces, Classrooms, Seminar Rooms, and Toilet Rooms to meet ADA demands. New windows were installed throughout the building providing natural light and ventilation where none existed previously. The south facade and entry was extensively reconstructed to bring light into the south corridor / lobby space. This involved a new curved steel roof truss system with translucent panels for the roof and a steel trellis system to shade the new south facing glazing.
