Dickinson College Rector Science Complex Expansion

Project Name

Rector Science Complex Addition & Renovations


Carlisle, PA

Project Description

Quandel was chosen by Dickinson College to construct a 22,500 square foot expansion to their Rector Science Complex. The addition included a state-of-the-art research and teaching space, an enclosed courtyard and additional study nooks.

The addition matches the existing, unique building in terms of construction type and materials, both inside and out. The added space includes teaching labs, research labs and office for biology faculty.

During the project, Quandel followed LEED guidelines during the construction process in order to minimize the amount of construction waste being sent to landfills, recycling and reusing as much as possible and reducing emissions association with construction equipment.
