Ostermayer Lab Building Renovation
The Pennsylvania State University is excited begin the Design-Build (D-B) Team Selection process for the
Greater Allegheny Ostermeyer Lab Renovation project. The project site is located in White Oak
Township, Allegheny County at 4000 University Drive, McKeesport PA 15132, on University-owned
property. The $14.0M project (total project cost) will support teaching and research labs for chemistry,
organic chemistry and biology labs, faculty offices and student spaces.
The existing 21,739 square foot Ostermeyer Lab Building was completed in 1973 and currently houses
three chemistry and organic chemistry labs, two biology labs, laboratory prep rooms and laboratory
storage, a general classroom and faculty offices. The project will include the complete interior, lab, and
building system renovation to modernize and improve the facility along with improvements to the main
entrance of the building. A comprehensive window replacement was recently completed. A program/
feasibility study for the renovation is currently being completed and will be used as the basis of design.
