Dana Science Building at Hollins University

Feb 3, 2017

Hollins University is celebrating their 175th anniversary with the renovation of the Dana Science Building, which is home to Hollins’ biology, chemistry, mathematics/statistics, physics, and psychology departments. The proximity of faculty offices, research and teaching labs, study rooms, and classroom space fosters the strong sense of community enjoyed by both Hollins’ students and faculty. G. J. Hopkins has been selected to perform the Mechanical and Plumbing scope of work for the renovation which upgrades classroom furniture, research equipment, projector systems, teaching laboratories, and technology in the Dana Science Building.
