A ground breaking ceremony was held in New Haven, CT on March 18 to announce the renovations and addition to the Jenkins-Waggoner Laboratory - part of the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station (CAES). 
The Jenkins-Waggoner Laboratory has not been significantly upgraded or expanded since it was constructed in the 1930ís.  In order to fulfill CAESís current mission and preserve this historic laboratory, the project will renovate and expand the facility providing a modern research laboratory environment while maintaining the character appearance of the original building.  The existing facility is 17,900 gross square feet (GSF), has three occupied floors plus a penthouse and contains laboratories, offices, insect collections and a library.  A two story 12,000 GSF addition will accommodate required program areas.  The construction contract is $9.14 million.
Project Goals:

  • Modern lab and office areas to support current CAES needs
  • Flexible space to provide for future needs
  • Preserve existing books and collections
  • Improve public access
  • Low operating and maintenance costs
  • Energy Efficient Sustainable Design/Minimum LEED Silver Certifications
