McMillan Pazdan Smith’s design for Wofford College’s Roger Milliken Science Center reinforces the campus’ rich architectural heritage by seamlessly blending the new addition with renovations to an existing 1959 structure, creating a new home for the Chemistry, Biology, Psychology and Physics Departments. Nestled among stately oaks, the building’s façade incorporates masonry and stone features found throughout campus, culminating into a grand, two-story stone clad entrance hall.
Featuring the innovative use of emerging technologies throughout the project, McMillan Pazdan Smith created a variety of flexible spaces for over 200 students and faculty. The entire facility is connected to a fiber optic network which utilizes wireless technology and blue tooth interfacing systems. Science classrooms include video and projection equipment, and each workstation is equipped with data and voice connections. Every space including laboratories, classrooms, offices and study areas was designed for maximum flexibility.
