Sis and Herman Dupre Science Pavilion

St. Vincent College



This project entails a complete renovation of the College’s 1960’s science complex to create state-of-the-art laboratories, support spaces, and classrooms. The first phase of construction demolished an old auditorium and commons building and built a new central building housing the core instructional laboratories, a new planetarium, and generous common spaces to encourage student interaction while creating a new focus of student life on campus. The complex houses the departments of biology, chemistry, physics, environmental science, and computer science. Specialized laboratory spaces includes the planetarium, a greenhouse, an animal facility, and a digital imaging laboratory.
