Gonzaga University’s transformational $56 million Integrated Science and Engineering facility heralds a new phase of expansion in STEM-related educational and interdisciplinary collaboration, enabling faculty and students to engage in important significant theoretical and applied work in an important new learning environment.

It adds more than 82,000 square feet of labs, classrooms, faculty offices and a special “collaboration studio.”

Scheduled to open in fall semester 2021, the facility will contribute to a total of more than 270,000 square feet dedicated to classroom and laboratory education for STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) disciplines.

The cladding is aluminum composite material (ACM) by Alucobond, the fabricator and system used is Engineered Wall Systems, a John W. McDougal Co., Inc. company. The system used is Series 400, a back-ventilated rainscreen installed on Knight’s MFI® System intermediate clips  for the engineered cladding attachment. The decorative aluminum vertical fin was manufactured by Industrial Louvers Inc.
