LCM architects of Chicago has been formally hired to begin detailed planning for the complete renovation of the Natural History Building! We are delighted to be moving forward with the $70M project, which is scheduled for completion in summer 2016. All three departments of the School of Earth, Society, and the Environment will be housed in a completely new interior occupying the historic outer shell. Local news coverage can be found at:
