PHASE ONE - December 1999 through August 2001
A new building housing the chemistry department and science library was constructed.

A new wing running north along Woodland Street from the west side of Kettering Hall was constructed; it provided housing for new labs and classrooms for the biology and neuroscience departments.

An addition to Wright connected the existing physics building with the new chemistry building.

PHASE TWO - July 2001 through February 2002
The chemistry department and science library moved to their new building, in the north section of the complex. Some biology and neuroscience functions moved to their new facilities, constructed between the north building and west wing of Kettering. Other functions moved temporarily to the east wing of Kettering vacated by chemistry and the library.

PHASE THREE March 2002 through September 2002
The east wing of Kettering was demolished.

The east facade of Kettering, the connection between Kettering and Sperry, the remaining renovations in Wright, and the landscaping were all completed.
