Millennium Science Complex On Track for Completion

Despite recent obstacles, construction on the new Millennium Science Complex remains on schedule for completion sometime during the summer of 2011.

As previously reported by The Collegian, the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades of Monroeville, PA, which services the project, threatened to strike if Allegheny Interiors and Drywall, the subcontractor for the project, did not limit hiring to union members.

As of yesterday, the union is beginning to seek legal litigation, however details are not being released at the moment.

The University has remained neutral throughout the conflict, and does not plan on intervening unless the disputes delay the anticipated completion date. We will update should that occur.

The building, on which construction began in July of 2008, is located off Bigler and Pollock Roads and will be neighbor to the existing Life Sciences and Chemistry Buildings. The new complex will be host to cutting-edge research in Life and Materials Sciences. The building will also feature some eco-friendly design qualities, including heat recovery wheels to recycle air within the building. More information on plans for the building’s use is available courtesy of Penn State Live and The Huck Institutes.
