About the Project

Facilities and Operations has commenced a renovation of the Pasupathy Lab in Pupin Hall 100 level.  The project includes the expansion of the existing laboratory on the 100 level, upgrade of a new area for the lab on the 200 level, and the renovation of office space on the 1300 level. The scope of work includes creating STM experimental chambers, the laboratory corridor, which serves as control space for the experiments inside the chambers, and the laboratory work area on the 100 level; mechanical and infrastructure support for the expanded laboratory and laboratory accessory use space on the 200 level; and a cosmetic refresh of rooms 1303 to 1313 which includes new flooring, painting, and a new sink.


Regular work hours are 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, with after-hours work anticipated during the creation of the STM chamber pits and mechanical, electrical, and plumbing utility tie-ins. The project is anticipated to be complete by October 2022.

What to Expect

Expect some noise and other impacts typically associated with construction projects. The most impactful phase of the project will be the below-grade STM pit work. More details about that phase of the work will be shared prior to its start.
