LUBBOCK, Texas -

The final beam of the Experimental Sciences Building two was lifted into place at Texas Tech. 

This new building is expected to significantly expand the university's research capabilities. The 117,800 square foot building will include an animal vivarium, four general wet labs, three instrumental labs, and two synthetic labs in addition to offices, collaborative spaces and conference rooms. 

"So, it very much is a central part of Texas Tech's research enterprise, where we are now and where we intend to be in the future," Texas Tech President Lawrence Schovanec said. 

"And we are doing some amazing things nationally and internationally as it pertains to research and so this is the flagship for all research we do in the system and this is one of the more exciting buildings we have going on in the system," Texas Tech System Chancellor Robert Duncan said.

The anticipated completion for the project is June of this year.
