The Ann and Richard Barshinger Life Sciences and Philosophy Building was recently recognized for “Excellence in Craftsmanship” by the General Building Contractors Association.

The GBCA includes more than 350 contractors, subcontractors and other construction-related companies in the mid-Atlantic region.

“To receive special recognition for this building on so many different levels speaks well for the teamwork and forethought that went into the project,” said Larry Harder, associate vice president for facilities planning and capital projects.

The award acknowledged the College, the primary contractor, Turner Construction Company, and project architects Einhorn Yaffee Prescott Architecture & Engineering.

The Ann and Richard Barshinger Life Sciences and Philosophy Building is a 108,000-square-foot, four-level academic building that serves as the home for the Philosophy, Psychology and Biology departments, as well as the Biological Foundations of Behavior program and the Scientific and Philosophical Studies of Mind program.

The educational facility contains 11 teaching labs, 17 research labs, nine student research write-up areas, 36 faculty offices, three classrooms, three seminar rooms, a statistics lab, a 120-seat lecture hall, 12 discussion areas, a three-story grand entrance atrium, a humanities common, a formal philosophy garden, a vivarium, aquatics and plant-growth suites and a 400-square-foot computer-controlled greenhouse.
