GEORGETOWN - Southwestern University will break ground this fall on a $24 million project to modernize the Fondren-Jones Science Hall, which was built in 1953.

Phase I will add 23,700 sf to the southeast side of the 38,000-sf building. The new space will house biology, chemistry, and physics laboratories on the first floor; a molecular biology center and a cell culture lab on the second floors; and teaching and research labs for biochemistry and organic chemistry on the third floor.

Phase I, which will cost $8 million, will begin this fall and is scheduled for completion by spring 2016.

Phase II will gut the original building and add a three-story atrium. A completion date for Phase II will be set when the full $16 million cost for the upgrade is raised.

Once both phases are complete, the building will include 103,000 sf.
