Schweitzer Hall Addition

Historic Schweitzer Hall is key to the University of Missouri fulfilling the campus and system commitment to research, instruction and external funding in the area of Medical and Life Sciences. This project allowed critically needed laboratory spaces near clinics to be vacated, and through consolidation of the Biochemistry faculty, enhanced the productivity of the notably successful UMC Department of Biochemistry. The building addition included a bridge to the original building and was constructed of a structural steel frame with limestone veneer and slate roof to match the existing building. Additionally, underpinning of the existing building was required to install the new basement, which needed fiberglass reinforcing to accommodate a Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectrometer that serves the entire University of Missouri System and was the first in the State of Missouri. Two stories and a mechanical penthouse above the NMR basement floor, house state-of-the-art laboratory spaces and department offices.
