Dunklau Center for Science, Math & Business

The Dunklau Center for Science, Math and Business features 58,000 square feet of new construction and 28,000 square feet of renovated space, for a combined total of 86,000 square feet. Situated on the main campus quad, this $24.5 million project will be entirely funded by generous supporters of the university.

The Dunklau Center includes laboratory spaces for hands on, real world interactive learning for students:

  • Four biology lab spaces (Anatomy & Physiology, Biochemistry, Ecology, Gross Anatomy with space for four cadavers)
  • Three chemistry labs (two General Chemistry, one Organic Chemistry)
  • Two physics labs (Mechanics, Optics & Electronics)
  • Two computer science labs (one Computer Circuitry, one Networking)
  • Greenhouse

In addition, there will be five research labs for longer-term, advanced projects.

The Dunklau Center includes collaborative spaces for students and faculty to work together in flexible, adaptable environments. A nearly 1,000 square foot "Co-Lab" extending above the campus quad will be prominent, providing space for large and small group student projects and study, classes, programs and meetings.

A 96-seat lecture hall, conference rooms, faculty offices, and an entirely new area for computing services will be included in the completed complex.



I enjoyed working with SHA on the Canopy Street Project.  It was a very complex project which required both large scale design thought as well as a focus on small details. Their professionalism impressed me as well as all of the other clients in the project from restaurants, to hotel operations through condo buyers, SHA continued to move the project forward and solve problems with all in mind.  As a licensed architect myself I really appreciated their willingness to partner with me and listen to my design ideas while improving the direction time and time again. Quite simply, Canopy Street would not have been nearly as successful without SHA’s talented staff.
