Walls going up on new science tech facility at UW

Jan 14, 2014 - The Associated Press

The building is named for Wyoming U.S. Sen. Mike Enzi.

LARAMIE -- Construction has begun in Laramie on a $50-million laboratory building for the University of Wyoming.

The building is called the Michael B. Enzi Undergraduate STEM Lab Facility.

The lab building is going up on Lewis Street, between 10th and 11th streets. Fences will go up and a crane will move in sometime in April. The 100,000 square-foot, three-story building is set for completion in late spring 2015.

The building will house freshman- and sophomore-level math and science classes.

STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics. It will not house research laboratories.

A public meeting last week about construction of the facility included presentations of conceptual drawings of the facility, information on project schedules, street mitigation measures, and a general question-and-answer session.
