In one of its current projects McCarty Architects is in the design phase for this estimated $100 million project to design the first S.T.E.M. facility on a major university in the state of Mississippi. This facility will house the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math departments in one building to allow for collaboration and shared resources and staff. This facility will be a new state-of-the-art educational facility located on All American Drive in the heart of the University’s STEM precinct with a Base Program of 207,000 gross square feet. The estimated completion date is late 2018 or early 2019. This 4-story building with a mechanical penthouse is organized around a full-height atrium and the exterior design balances traditional elements consistent with the architecture of the University with contemporary design to reflect the advanced innovation of the S.T.E.M. program.
