TTU’s New Lab Science Building Ready for 2021

Tennessee Tech is preparing to open the largest building on campus for the start of the Spring semester.

Associate Vice President for Facilities Chuck Roberts said the $93 million and 165,000 square foot Lab Science Building will be the new home for the chemistry department and parts of biology, physics and earth science departments. Roberts said the transition will begin before the end of 2020.

“End of next month we’ll have folks start moving in,” Roberts said. “Then over January we can start hosting some classes in there next semester.”

Roberts said the new building will have a large, new lecture hall for students. The Lab Science Building has been under construction since 2017.
