On September 5th, 2019, Roper Mountain Science Center formally broke ground on a new Environmental Science Building. Craig Gaulden Davis, in partnership with Lee H. Skolnick Architecture + Design Partnership (LHSA+DP), designed a 27,500 square foot state-of-the-art learning facility that highlights sustainability in the Upstate. The new RMSC building will feature STEAM/STEM-based student-centered labs, interactive plant and animal habitat displays, a multi-level Greenville-focused water cycle exhibit, a teaching kitchen, classrooms and administrative space.
This project embodies the impact of public/private partnerships on students and all visitors to this treasured Greenville County School resource. Building upon The Mountain’s strong foundation, the new Environmental Science building will offer new and exciting learning opportunities for us all.
