Construction of the Schatz Center’s new “West Wing” is nearing completion. The 1900 square foot single-story building was designed by Suarez Kuehne Architecture of San Francisco, and is being built by Adams Commercial General Contracting of Eureka. The new addition is located immediately west of the current Schatz office building and lab.
The $1.04M facility will include fourteen workstations for professional staff and student research assistants, two faculty offices, and a conference room that can accommodate 8-10 people. The West Wing matches our current building’s design, with features including a standing seam metal roof, redwood siding and stucco, and large windows to provide generous daylighting.
The exterior is complete. Inside, the wiring, lighting, drywall, and painting are done, and the carpet and Marmoleum™ flooring have been installed. Desks, cabinets, and other furnishings have been ordered. Schatz staff anticipate moving into the new space by early November.
