The design-build Miramar College Science Building project consisted of a new 50,000-sq.-ft. structure and conversion of space on the first and second levels to provide a breezeway to the entrance of the new building. The first level of the new building includes classrooms and faculty offices totaling approximately 18,000-sq.-ft. The second level includes teaching laboratories for chemistry, astronomy, geology, anatomy, marine biology, microbiology, physics, biology, and laboratory preparation rooms totaling approximately 27,000-sq.-ft. The roof level has a greenhouse and observatory totaling 1,000-sq.-ft. of occupied space. The overall site improvement area is approximately 100,000-sq.-ft.
