More than 40 people gathered at Colusa Hall on Thursday to discuss the construction of a new building that will replace the current Physical Sciences building.

The primary location of the new facility is set to replace Siskiyou Hall, near Ivy Street. It is estimated to be around 110,000 square feet and four stories high.

Concepts of the building are still under development with the hope of adding features that will represent the sustainability of Chico.

One interesting feature includes the building to be clear glass.

“What if you could see through the building and look at Ivy Street!” said Bill Katz, a presenter of the proposed project.

Officials hope to complete construction before 2022. An estimated cost of the project has yet to be determined.

The new science building is set to implement open of space, sustainability and create an active learning environment.
