MSUB Life Sciences Building
Location: Billings, MT
MSU Billings’ Life Sciences Building included the addition and partial renovation of the existing 3-story science building originally built in 1947. The addition included a new 3 story 37,000 square foot building with lab, classroom, and office space. The renovated space included 21,000 square feet of existing classrooms and office areas.

Classrooms, laboratories, an auditorium and offices combine to create an environment for learning and progressing through a rewarding college experience. The facility includes the newest features, including smart board technology in each classroom, a new greenhouse onsite and cutting-edge labs.
The building was designed to comply with the State of Montana’s high-performance building standards and achieve LEED Silver certification.
