Walls are Up for the Center for Chemical and Forensic Sciences


Watch in real time as contractors work on the new $68 million center, which will provide 135,000 square feet of laboratories, classrooms and offices, nearly doubling the amount of space for chemistry research at URI. A live video feed is monitoring the building, which was funded largely with a bond issue, and is due to be complete in the spring of 2016. See it at chm.uri.edu.

Another building project, the new Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Center, is also taking shape. URI officials say the small center is on track to open this spring. They believe it is the first university building in the country designed specifically for LGBTQ programs and services.
