    Bulley & Andrews’ project superintendent Deborah Rieck and the Facility Group’s William Lauck confer at the new front entrance to the Searle Chemistry Laboratory. Construction workers and subcontractors continued their work on the building a week before today’s private ribbon-cutting ceremony. The renovation began in October 2007, and the building will reopen June 1. The $49 million renovation will meet the new and future technical demands of leading scientific research, while fostering the human interaction that fuels cross-disciplinary scholarship at the University. Searle Laboratory also likely will attain LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
