Immaculata University moves forward with the design of the new Parsons Science Pavilion. Crabtree, Rohrbaugh & Associates is proud to partner with the University for the design of this new 15,000 SF + new building. The Science Center will have 7 wet labs, 1 computer lab, offices and a unique collaboration space. The building will provide additional spaces for cutting-edge research-based courses for all students and foster collaboration between faculty and students in all science and health care related disciplines. Some of the key lab spaces are as follows:
- Biology Lab – General
- Biology Lab – Environmental and Ecology
- Anatomy and Physiology Lab
- Chemistry – General
- Chemistry Lab – Majors
- Chemistry Lab – Physical, Analytical, Instrumental, Forensic
- Organics Lab
- Collaboration Zone
The new science center will have a state-of-the-art Anatomage Table that enables users to visualize the human body virtually through a fully segmented real human 3D anatomy. Anatomy is presented as a fully interactive, life sized touch screen experience. It will also have a PCR/DNA Amplifier machine that is used to amplify segments of DNA via the Polymerase Chain Reaction and a Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectrometer which is used to image the anatomy and the physiological processes of the human body.
The new Science Pavilion is budgeted at $5.4 Million and is anticipated to be completed in August of 2022.
