The project is the culmination of an 11-year phased construction process that began with the firm developing a master plan for the Forensic Science campus. Phase I was completed in 1999 and the program located in the renovated locker room building at the north end of Fairfield Stadium, Marshall’s former football stadium. Phase II was completed in 2004 with a two-story addition to the existing building providing computer forensics, digital evidence lab and administrative spaces. Phase III was completed in 2009 with a three-story addition providing a biotech business incubator, forensic science instruction and research laboratory spaces. We coordinated all aspects of the design including lab equipment. A biotech business incubator and additional classroom space was built out in 2014.
“The MU Forensic Science Center’s phased design created a unified campus to reflect a cohesive theme, highlighting that state-of-the-art forensic science is being performed within these structures. It has be a pleasure working with Edward Tucker Architects. We hope to work together on future projects including a drug testing and research laboratory.”
