SDSU Avera Science

SDSU’s College of Pharmacy and the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry serves 70% of the students on its campus and Gil Haugan Construction acted as General Contractor for this facility.  The expansion included 97,000 square feet of instructional laboratories, classrooms and faculty offices.  The renovation of Shepard Hall resulted in 48,600 square feet of cutting edge research and laboratory space.  GHC self-performed structural steel, foundation, concrete, and casework totaling 28% of the project requirements.

Prominently located near SDSU’s classically-styled Administration Building, its design incorporates modern materials, coupled with classical forms and proportions, to reflect the high-tech nature of the work inside while respecting the campus context.
