Caylor-White-Walters Renovation

Work is underway on the long-awaited renovation of Caylor-White-Walters Hall, the home of the sciences and mathematics at DSU. The first phase of the project is to construct a two-story addition on the east side of the existing building. The addition will house new laboratories for general biology, cell biology, general chemistry, organic chemistry, and several advanced biology and chemistry courses.

After the addition is completed and existing laboratories are relocated, the remainder of the building will be renovated in two phases, each focussing on one of the two existing wings. The renovated Caylor-White Hall will house additional biology laboratories, science education facilities, lecture rooms, biology faculty offices, and the museum. The renovated Walters hall will house additional chemistry and physics laboratories, the planetarium, research space, computer laboratories, lecture rooms, physical science and mathematics faculty offices, and administrative offices for the Departments of Biological Sciences, Department of Physical Sciences, and Department of Mathematics.

The current schedule calls for moving into the new laboratory wing in summer 2014. By August 2014, rooms in the addition will be occupied and ready for fall classes. The next phase of the project will involve relocating people and equipment from the existing Caylor-White side of the building so that renovation can begin there. Once this phase is completed, the new spaces in Caylor will be functional and renovation can begin on the Walters side of the building. When the project is complete, all of the Caylor-White-Walters complex will essentially be a new building.

Science and math faculty are excited to see this project, which has been in the planning process for several years, finally beginning to become a reality. Future math and science students will benefit greatly, and faculty will be better able to serve them, in a modern environment where they can succeed in preparing for today’s technological world.
