• Gonzaga University is building a new, collaborative science and engineering facility
  • 82,679 square feet will be added to the 29,138 square feet of PACCAR, the 78,240 square feet of Herak and the 80,433 square feet of Hughes to create a 270,490 square-foot combined science and engineering space
  • Connecting the west end of PACCAR Center to the south end of Hughes Hall
  • Dedicated to innovation in teaching, learning and undergraduate research
  • Transparent spaces will put science and engineering on display, encouraging engagement with the entire community
  • Students of all majors will experience this facility through core curriculum classes
  • Intentionally placed near the headquarters of the College of Arts and Sciences — home to the University core — elements of the core curriculum will be delivered in this facility, allowing students the opportunity to engage in integrated environments to solve problems, create commerce, and explore disciplines of innovation and entrepreneurship, all balanced with a heart and mind for the common good


  • SRG Partnership Inc. of Portland, Oregon is the lead architect, along with Integrus Architecture of Spokane, Washington; Research Facilities Design of San Diego, California; MW Engineers of Spokane, and DCI Engineers of Spokane.
