Payette Awarded New Science Building by Bates College
We are thrilled to announce we’ve been selected to lead the design of Bates College’s 54,000 GSF New Science Building. It will house research and teaching labs, a variety of classrooms and spaces for students to study and meet.
This project is exciting because it’s “really is about putting people together who have shared research areas and shared research needs” rather than separating them in quarters according to discipline, says Ryan Bavis, co-chair of Bates’ STEM Facilities Building Committee and the Helen A. Papaioanou Professor of Biological Sciences, as quoted in the Bates College announcement about the project.
We look forward to working with Bates College on designing a home for the college’s chemistry, biology and neuroscience programs that will reflect current thinking in science pedagogy and incorporate cutting-edge technologies.
