IMMACULATA UNIVERSITY, PA — Immaculata University’s president, Barbara Lettiere ’72, signed the contract for the pre-construction phase and construction phase services for the new Parsons Science Pavilion yesterday. In early June 2021, Immaculata is planning a groundbreaking ceremony, which continues its centennial celebrations. With 90% of the funds for the $6.5 million dollar Parsons Science Pavilion campaign raised so far, students can begin using the new building at the start of the fall 2022 semester.
Graduating a large number of science majors, Immaculata’s Parsons Science Pavilion will provide modern laboratory spaces for chemistry and biology students and will be a great complement to our very successful and highly regarded nursing program. The building includes cutting-edge scientific and simulation equipment that allows students to engage with the newest techniques and industry-specific equipment in a small class environment.
“The Parsons Science Pavilion will be a game-changer for all of our science students,” states President Lettiere. “Our nursing, biology and chemistry students will enjoy the labs and equipment they need to succeed in today’s high-tech world.”
Designed by architectural firm of company Crabtree, Rohrbaugh & Associates, the 15,592 square feet in the science pavilion will include seven wet labs; PCR/DNA Amplifier machines; Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectrometer and Mass Spectrometer in the chemistry labs; and an Anatomage Table for virtual reality anatomy and dissection.
Chester Valley Engineers, Inc. serves as the civil engineers; Barry Isett & Associates as structural and “mep” (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) engineers; and Page Southerland Page, Inc., as laboratory planning consultants. The general contractor is R.C. Legnini Co, Inc., of Malvern, PA.
