New Physics Building and Osmond Laboratory Renovations
The project funding was identified in PSU’s 2018-2023 Five Year Capital Plan. The new building will be located on the Osmond Parking Lot, at approximately 105,000 Gross Square Feet, and will house a significant number of research laboratories, faculty and graduate student offices, administrative support areas and a 350-seat lecture hall. Vibration sensitive research will be conducted in the new building, requiring two below grade levels.
The project will also renovate the East wing of the existing Osmond Lab (the wing that is perpendicular to Pollock Road) and also will demolish the existing rear lecture hall wing of Osmond Lab. The renovation of the Osmond wing will be approximately 47,000 gross square feet and will be converted in new teaching labs, prep/support space, seminar rooms and provide a renovated building core. The project will include a new sub-surface stormwater detention facility.
