Save the date for a groundbreaking on a new state-of-the-art chemistry building at Ohio University on Thursday, Aug. 30, from 3 – 5 p.m.

A reception in Clippinger Laboratories follows the shovel ceremony.

The new building is projected to open in the summer of 2020 and is considered phase 1 of the Clippinger renovation project. Phases 2 and 3 will follow in Clippinger as space is available to shift labs, offices, and classroom into the new building. The project is estimated to cost $42.6 million.

“The architects, planners, staff and faculty have all been involved in the collaborative discussions to develop an exciting new facility for chemistry. We are excited for the proposed project as it will complement the core strengths of the department and enable us to achieve our full potential for the 21st century,” said Dr. Stephen C. Bergmeier, Professor and Chair of Chemistry & Biochemistry.
