Kraus-Anderson Completes $70M Renovation, Expansion of Science Facilities at Minnesota’s Gustavus Adolphus College
ST. PETER, MINN. — Kraus-Anderson Construction Co. has completed a $70 million renovation and expansion of Nobel Hall of Science at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, about 70 miles southwest of Minneapolis. Nobel Hall houses the departments of biology, chemistry, geography and geology, along with interdisciplinary programs in biochemistry, molecular biology and environmental studies. Designed by Hastings+Chivetta, the 182,828-square-foot project nearly doubled the building’s footprint. A lobby and laboratory theater connects Nobel Hall to the Schafer Fine Arts building. The project also added new research and teaching laboratories, offices, classrooms and meeting rooms as well as a museum, greenhouse and auditorium.
