The Yale Science Building project is a major construction project that will provide new research and teaching space on Science Hill. The project will demolish J.W. Gibbs Laboratory and replace it with a new 240,000 gross square foot laboratory building. In addition to the new building, the project will renovate program space beneath the Science Hill Plaza, and provide a new Plaza Pavilion which will act as a central social and gathering space on Science Hill.
