On April 26th, Virginia Commonwealth University officially opened the College of Humanities and Sciences’ STEM building. Ballinger led the programming, lab planning and design of this six-floor, 181,000 SF building in collaboration with Quinn Evans Architects. Home to kinesiology, chemistry, biology, physics, anthropology, mathematics, and psychology, the building features 32 teaching labs; the Math Exchange, an innovative facility for math instruction; the Science Hub, a dedicated space for student/faculty interaction, study groups and specialized support for STEM classes; two 250-seat, team-based learning classrooms; computer labs; and large- and small-capacity flexible classrooms. It also will feature instructional wet and dry labs and classrooms for teaching STEM subjects.

Design Architect and Ballinger Principal Steve Bartlett, AIA, LEED AP was pleased to be part of this celebration that was 8 years in the making. “This is a transformative endeavor for humanities and science education at VCU,” said Steve.
