Built in 1969 and enlarged in 1989, the building complex is in need of major repairs. Although the laboratories have been updated on a regular basis, the physical plant has not.
The 5 buildings in this complex are important because of their educational usage and availability for cultural and educational outreach to the general public. Furthermore, this complex has significantly influenced other major buildings and campuses, e.g. the Community College of Allegheny County (Pittsburgh), elementary schools in the region, and the Pittsburgh International Airport.
