Washington State University unveiled its new $66 million Plant Sciences Building with a video tour on Nov. 16.
The university’s College of Agricultural, Human and Natural Resource Sciences released the video as a virtual commemoration of the building, on which construction began in 2018 and finished this fall.
The four-story, 95,000-square-foot structure, the latest addition to the V. Lane Rawlins Research and Education Complex on the Pullman campus, was funded by the Washington State Legislature. It provides a modern research venue for the Institute of Biological Chemistry, Molecular Plant Science Program and parts of the horticulture, plant pathology, and crop and soil sciences departments, all of which were previously located in buildings at least 49 years old.
Several agricultural industry groups, including the wine grape and tree fruit industries, participated in the development of the building.
