The First Steps
The consulting team of Holly & Smith Architects and CannonDesign recommend the following initial phases of implementation:
Phase 1: Renovate Williams Hall 2nd floor and relocate Chemistry class labs from Choppin Hall 1st floor.
Phase 2: Renovate Choppin Hall 1st and 7th floors to provide additional research space and common areas.
Phase 3: Renovate Howe-Russell-Knien (proposed in 2 phases).
Future phases would involve the renovation of vacated space in Foster Hall for the Museum of Natu-ral Science to allow for the consolidation of collections.
