Westminster College Meldrum Science Center

We are extremely proud of our LEED Certified Meldrum Science Center. The building is designed to facilitate active, experiential, and collaborative learning through open, flexible classrooms and state-of-the-art research labs, while staying true to Westminster’s commitment to environmental responsibility.Stephen Morgan, President of Westminster College

Westminster College Meldrum Science Center

The four-story, 56,667 square-foot Meldrum Science Center at Westminster College features the best in sustainable design to achieve LEED Platinum and real payback in operational costs. Spectrum’s services included the design of a 21 kW rooftop, grid-tied solar photovoltaic (PV) array using 90+, 230-watt panels and three inverters. The four-level Science Center houses 14 multidisciplinary classrooms with integrated laboratories and dedicated research labs allowing professors and students to move seamlessly between theory and application. “Science on Display” areas provide interactive learning opportunities. Daylight is used on all perimeter classrooms, labs and offices. The central circulation core is flooded with controlled daylight from skylights.

The Science Center’s cutting-edge research equipment, which is typically reserved for faculty and advanced graduate students at major research universities, will be available to Westminster students and includes:





  • Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectrometer
  • Mass Spectrometer
  • Gas Chromatograph/Mass Spectrometer
  • High Performance Liquid Chromatograph
  • Differential Scanning Calorimeter
  • Atomic Absorption Spectrometer
  • Gas Chromatograph
  • Ion Chromatograph
  • Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrophotometer
  • Ultraviolet-Visible Spectrophotometer
  • Fluorescence Spectrophotometer
  • Circular Dichroism Spectrophotometer
  • Real-time PCR
  • Genetic Analysis System

What’s exciting about this project is the opportunity to create an environment using the latest available technologies to help students and future generations learn about sciences.
