Logan wrapped up its first week of construction on the Fuhr Science Center.

Fencing was installed around the perimeter of the building and construction crews concentrated efforts on the lower level of the building, removing flooring, drywall and acoustic ceiling tiles.

Looking ahead to this week…

  • During this phase, the Fuhr Science Center’s second floor restrooms, elevator, Anatomy Lab and Amphitheater remain open.
  • Access to the Fuhr Science Center’s second floor Anatomy Lab and Amphitheatre is through the southwestern most corner of the building (closest to the Administration Building).
  • The loading dock entrance will continue to be open at all times for access to the elevator; however, for non-elevator use, the southwest entrance is preferred.
  • Please take care in driving in the parking lots 5, 6, 8 and 9 and around the Fuhr Science Center as construction crews will be moving equipment and walking to and from the parking lots. Consider parking lots 2 and 3 as the other lots get full.
  • Work continues on the lower level and on the first floor of the Fuhr Science Center. Bathroom facilities on the second floor of the building remain open.

As a reminder, the campus construction project is being funded through three efforts: financing through an existing long-term relationship with the university’s banking partner, a strategic spend in cash reserves and the “Advancing Education, Transforming Lives” capital campaign, including a $1 million lead gift from Logan alum Dr. Arlan (’61) and Mrs. Judi Fuhr.

For questions, please contact a member of the Construction Communications Committee.

Please join us at 4:30 PM May 12th for the groundbreaking of the Fuhr Science Center.

Dr. Arlan and Mrs. Judi Fuhr, Logan President Clay McDonald, and Chesterfield Mayor Bob Nation, as well as other members of the Logan community, will provide remarks before the ceremonial groundbreaking.

For those unable to attend in person the event will be live-streamed here.

The most significant portion of the Main Administration Building renovation will be focused on the George Goodman, DC Learning Resource Center (LRC) and the relocation of the bookstore to the current LRC space. This work is scheduled to start in Spring 2023.

Renovation plans are based on student, faculty and staff feedback which indicated a need for more study spaces and natural light. Ittner Architects, who designed the space to accommodate Logan’s needs, added that, “a university library today, and in the future, is about more than books. Libraries are community places, both symbolic and functional representations of scholarship. To serve the needs of the Logan Community the Learning Resource Center must be accessible and accommodate both independent and collaborative activities.”

 

Renovation will include:

  • The removal of the physical barriers around the Learning Resource Center: walls, security portals, etc. will increase visibility, student access and integration into campus life.
  • Staff spaces and resources are located at the intersection of the primary library spaces to improve student access.
  • Spaces and furniture will accommodate a greater range of technology and activities from individual quiet study to collaborative groups.
  • The window systems will be replaced to increase natural light and improve comfort.
  • The bookstore will be relocated and re-built with connections to the Library for greater student access.

Will the LRC close during construction?

No, the LRC services will remain open for the duration of construction; instead, parts of the LRC space will be unavailable while construction is taking place. Students and faculty will have the ability to check out materials from the circulation desk at all times.

Where can I study while portions of the LRC is closed?

The Purser Center lobby will be dedicated for students to study and have small group collaborations. Tables and chairs will be moved into that space prior to Spring 2023.

What is happening with the stained glass in the LRC?

The stained glass will be displayed as part of an outdoor installation where individuals can sit and reflect. It will serve as both a tribute to our campus predecessor Maryknoll Seminary as well as individuals who generously donated their bodies to Logan University. The stained glass installation is currently being proposed for the west side of campus, just north of parking lot 3. It will be accessible via a stairway from parking lot 3 and an ADA accessible ramp leading from the Administration Building. Click here to see artist renderings of the stained glass installation.

As a reminder, the campus construction project is being funded through three efforts: financing through an existing long-term relationship with the university’s banking partner, a strategic spend in cash reserves and the “Advancing Education, Transforming Lives” capital campaign, including a $1 million lead gift from Logan alum Dr. Arlan (’61) and Mrs. Judi Fuhr.

The following timeline (below, available for download and on the main page) has been provided for the full two-year campus construction:

Highlights of the Timeline

Fuhr Science Center

  • Summer 2022 Trimester: Renovating approximately 75 percent of the first floor of the Science Center, and the south portion of the second floor and lower level renovation. During this time, the Anatomy Lab and supported areas will remain open.
  • April 10, 2023 – June 9, 2023: First and second floors of the Science Center close. In order to create the least amount of disruption as possible, the Anatomy Lab’s closure will take place during the last few weeks of the Spring 2023 trimester, during break and during the first few weeks of the Summer 2023 trimester. By early June, the new anatomy lab will be completed and ready for use. The University is in the early planning stages to minimize the impact of the closed area to those students using the lab.
  • Summer 2023: Renovation of the northeast corner of the first floor.

Administration Building

  • Fall 2022: Renovations of the south and central area of the lower level, the new testing center and classrooms G102 and G105.
  • Spring 2023: Renovation of the north and north-central area of the lower level and the relocation of the bookstore to the LRC.
  • Fall 2023: Renovation of the chapel area of the LRC and the Administration Building Lobby.
  • Spring 2024: Renovation of classrooms in south and central area of the lower level and office space on first floor.

Logan is proud to be funding this campus construction project through three efforts: financing through an existing long-term relationship with the university’s banking partner, a strategic spend in cash reserves and the “Advancing Education, Transforming Lives” capital campaign, including a $1 million lead gift from Logan alum Dr. Arlan (’61) and Mrs. Judi Fuhr.

Please be aware that the Main Administration Building will be powered down for approximately two hours beginning at 10 PM Monday, April 25 in order to run electricity to the modular units in lot 9.

It will be important to save all work and shut down computers before leaving for the day on Monday, April 25. The power down may impact those who are working remotely after 10 PM. An “all-clear” communication will be sent when the power is back up and running.

April 13, 2022

Over the last several weeks, construction crews have been working to set up the modular units in parking lot 9 which will serve as temporary classroom and office space during campus construction. The units will be ready for use at the beginning of the Summer trimester in May.

As we look toward construction on the Administration Building, specifically the Learning Resources Center, leadership wanted to ensure we honor the history of Logan’s campus while providing the best facilities to our students.

One important piece of feedback we hear from students and staff is that the light in LRC is not conducive to reading. In efforts to improve the lighting conditions, we will be moving the stained glass to an alternative location on campus that highlights and celebrate its value here at Logan.

The stained glass will be displayed as part of an outdoor installation where individuals can sit and reflect. It will serve as a tribute to Maryknoll Seminary, the previous owner of campus property, and individuals who have generously donated their bodies to Logan University’s Anatomy Lab.

As construction begins on the Fuhr Science Center in mid-May, clinical lab classes that are normally held in that building will temporarily move to spaces within the William D. Purser Center as well as two modular classrooms, which will be located in lot 9.

These modular classrooms will house flat bench tables and activator tables. Diversified tables will be housed in the North and South Mabee Halls of the Purser Center as well as Room G46 in the Administration Building.

The Summer 2022 class schedule for the Doctor of Chiropractic program can be found here.

How big are the modular classrooms?

Each modular structure is 24 feet wide by 48 feet long, providing a total of 1,125 square feet of interior space. The modular classrooms each provide room for 20 and 21, respectively, adjusting tables with two students assigned per table.

Will there be enough space in the modular classrooms?

Staff will continuously monitor all temporary spaces, and adjustments may be made throughout the term. Students and faculty will be notified in advance of any changes in location to their classes.

Where will classroom supplies be stored?

All classroom supplies will be kept in the temporary spaces.

Are the modular spaces temperature controlled?

Yes, the modular spaces will have heating and air conditioning.

Will electives be held in the modular classrooms?

All electives courses are noted in the Summer 2022 Elective Schedule, which can be found here.

For questions, please contact a member of the Construction Communications Committee.

March 22, 2022

We have been notified by Tarlton, our construction contractor, that the modular classrooms and offices will be arriving on campus, beginning tomorrow (March 23rd) through mid-next week.

The modulars will be placed in parking lot 7 for staging and refurbishing before being moved to parking lot 9.

For more information, please reach out to Logan’s Director of Facilities Barron Smith at Barron.Smith@logan.edu or call (636) 230-1981.

March 15, 2022

In early April, three modular structures will be brought to campus to temporarily house faculty and staff offices and classrooms until the new areas of Fuhr Science Center and Administration Building construction are complete. The structures will be refurbished and ready for occupation before the start of the summer trimester (week of May 9).

The modular structures will be located in lot 9, next to the Standard Process Student Center. This area will be closed to parking.

What are the modular structures for?

During the two-year construction timeframe, the modular structures will serve as additional space for classrooms and faculty and staff offices.

Clinical lab classes displaced by the construction will move to both the William D. Purser Center and modular classrooms. Offices displaced by the construction will move temporarily to several newly renovated offices in the Administration Building and in the modular office structure.

Individuals will rotate through the modular structures, based on construction demands and as construction is both started and completed in various areas.  Relocation assignments and details will be provided directly to those impacted.

Fuhr Science Building

  • Current # Faculty/Staff in Science Bldg: 21
  • Number of Temporary Work Spaces (Modular & in Admin Bldg.): 25
  • Post-Construction Number of New Offices: 30

How big are the modular structures?

Each modular structure is 24 feet wide by 48 feet long, providing a total of 1,125 square feet of interior space.

The modular classrooms each provide room for 20 and 21, respectively, adjusting tables. The modular office provides space for 20 work stations.

Faculty and staff members who are rotating through the modular office structure will have an assigned desk, a small secured cabinet for belongings and their current computer/phone. Due to a limited amount of space in the trailers, all personal items should go home. Only office items will be transferred to the trailers. If you need storage for anything other than personal items, it should be marked on the boxes that are provided to you. Facilities will work directly with those individuals needing to relocate.

What do the modular structures look like?

When the modular structures arrive on campus, they will be completely refurbished from top to bottom, including new exterior and interior painting and carpeting. Wooden walkways between the modular classrooms and offices, a ramp and a canopy over the walkway, will be constructed. The structures will provide air-conditioning and heat, and will have windows for natural light

Do the modular structures have sinks and bathrooms?

The modular structures are not equipped with sinks and bathrooms. Bathroom facilities are located just inside entrance A17. Hand sanitizer will be provided in the modular structures.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during this construction period, but know that these temporary inconveniences will result in permanent improvements.

For questions, please contact your direct supervisor, Director of Facilities Barron Smith (Barron.Smith@logan.edu or 636 230-1981), or a member of the Construction Communications Committee.
