Beloit College Center for the Sciences

Beloit, WI


The new Center for the Sciences facility forms a gateway to Beloit College’s wooded forty-acre grounds and establishes a link between the north and south campuses. Designed by Holabird & Root, the building is organized around a four-story atrium that allows the science departments to interface. The exterior materials, brick masonry and warm precast concrete, were selected to compliment the original campus.

In August 2008, Beloit College celebrated the opening of their new 121,000 square foot Center for the Sciences building with work continuing into late 2009 involving the construction of a new greenhouse and substantial site work. The facility utilized a wide range of sustainable construction techniques and was built by Findorff, in association with Klobucar Construction, to meet USGBC LEED Platinum certification standards.
