The University of Washington erected this new chemistry building because costs of renovating Bagley Hall, the existing location of chemistry department labs, offices and classrooms, would be too high. Various new building codes for worker safety and environmental health combined to make it prohibitive. A new $40 million addition designed by the Santa Monica, CA, architecture firm of Moore, Ruble, Yudell (assisted by Seattle architects Loschky, Marquardt and Nesholm) completed the design of the 108,000 square foot building containing 200 new state-of-the-art fume hoods. A breezeway connected the addition to Bagley Hall. The addition was officially dedicated in 04/1995.
