Fitchburg State University - Science Facility Modernization

The original Condike Science Building at Fitchburg State University was constructed in 1963.

The project provided full renovation of Condike and a new 57,700 GSF addition for the Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Geo-physical Science departments. The addition was built on the site of the little-used Parkinson Gymnasium, which was demolished. New space includes classrooms, wet laboratories, offices, and support spaces.
