UMass Amherst Physical Science Building Topping Off
08.23.16 On August 2nd, a topping off ceremony was held for the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Physical Science Building and West Experiment Station. Designed by Wilson Architects, the PSB supports scientific discovery in the fields of materials science, condensed matter, nuclear physics, and organic chemistry; the WES will house the faculty and graduate student offices for the Physics department. The exterior masonry on the original WES, a 19th Century research laboratory was salvaged and will be reused on the new building. The project also includes two bridges and a tunnel connecting the PSB, WES, the Goessmann Chemistry Laboratory, and the Lederle Graduate Research Center.
