Ribbon Cutting: Augustana College Hanson Hall of Science

Ribbon Cutting: Augustana College Hanson Hall of Science Expansion

Celebrating the start of the 2019-2020 academic year, Augustana College held a ribbon cutting ceremony on Tuesday, September 3rd to commemorate the expansion to its Hanson Hall of Science. Delivered on time and within budget, the project includes a 4-story, 22,000 s.f. addition to the existing structure.

The circular expansion incorporates metal panels and stone veneer designed to reflect the circular element of the south end as well as compliment the adjacent buildings. The project also features exposed structures and mechanical systems, offering the spaces a “Maker Workshop” feel.

Within the addition are 5 studio style labs that provide a flexible learning environment for classes to easily transition between small groups and lecture formats. The first-floor lab and studio focus on Physics courses. The second floor caters to Environmental Studies, where the Geospatial Lab is located and consists of 8 workstations designed with pop up monitors which are all connected for interactive learning and presentation. Studio style classrooms comprise the third floor. The fourth and final floor includes the Behavioral Neurosciences Labs and the Cognitive Neuroscience Lab along with five faculty offices.

We are proud to help enhance the experience for Augustana’s students and its campus community!
