WSU gets nearly $114M for construction and renovation projects

PULLMAN, Wash. – State lawmakers have approved $113.9 million for Washington State University to use for construction and renovation projects.

Here is a list of the projects that are included in the plan:

  • $52 million: Construction of new Plant Sciences Building on Pullman campus
  • $23 million: Construction of Global Animal Health Phase II Building on Pullman campus
  • $22.3 million: Preservation projects across the University system
  • $10.1 million: Preventive facility maintenance and repairs across the University system

  • $42 million: Joint Center for Deployment and Research in Earth Abundant Materials, a collaborative venture with University of Washington and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
  • $1 million: Renovations to add more STEM teaching labs on Pullman campus
  • $500,000: Pre-design development of new Life Sciences Building on the Vancouver campus
