ELLENSBURG, Wash.--Central Washington University is drawing up plans for a new $61 million science facility.
The funding comes from the two-year state construction budget.
Bill Yarwood, Central's Director of Facilities said the multi-million dollar building will allow the university to consolidate all of its science departments, which are currently spread around campus. It will also add state of the art features for students.
"A working roof telescope and all kinds of opportunities up there for experiments," said Yarwood.
The building will also offer several sustainable features as well.
Yarwood said construction should begin in the spring of 2014, and it will take around a year to complete.
