The University of Hawaiʻi has taken an important step forward in its mission to create 21st century learning facilities while addressing its deferred maintenance backlog with the issuing of a request for proposal (RFP) for the turn-key delivery of the Life Sciences building project on the Mānoa campus.

The state-of-the art facility will provide new facilities for the College of Natural Sciences biology, microbiology and botany departments along with the Pacific Biosciences Research Center and the Biological Electron Microscope Facility.
