New Tree-Ring Lab building approved by ABOR


The Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research (LTRR) has been housed in the West Stadium for more than 70 years, with minimal improvements to their facilities. The Arizona Board of Regents has just approved construction of the Bryant Bannister Tree-Ring Building to house the UA's Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research. The $12 million project will be funded by a $9 million gift from Agnese N. Haury, the wife of one of the lab's founders, plus $3 million in nonstate funds. The building will provide about 26,700 square feet of office and laboratory space for the facility, which is currently housed primarily at Arizona Stadium. Construction is scheduled to begin toward the end of this year and be completed in mid-2012.
