UMN Tate Science and Teaching Renovation

Location: Minneapolis, MN
Completion Date: 2015
Budget: $92 Million

Tate Lab of Physics, renamed Tate Science and Teaching building is a planned renovation for a historic building on the U of M campus. It involves a complicated process starting with the demolition and removal of hazardous waste to make room for the renovation. The renovation itself involves a face lift to the facade, offices for over 350 faculty, and over 33 new teaching classrooms. The renovated building will serve around 2,000 students per day who will be taking classes in Physics, Astronomy, and Earth Sciences.

Working as an Associate Architect to Architectural Alliance, 4RM+ULA has been engaged to perform documentation of existing conditions, schematic design, design development, construction documentation, and construction administration.
