MSU’s STEM Teaching and Learning Facility is functional art for 21st century learning. The completely renovated 40,000 square foot old Shaw Power Plant, combined with a 120,000 square foot addition, is a beautiful sight to behold from top to bottom.
IBEW NECA 665 is proud to have had one of our own as the electrical contractor onsite for this project, and members responsible for the low-voltage wiring, including all data and IT wiring. A general theme of the overall design was fusing the old with the new, and we were thrilled to add to that by bringing modern technology to this partially historic building for our future STEM leaders.
Located next to Spartan Stadium, the building design has received many awards and accolades, including for its use of mass timber that reduces carbon dioxide emissions. This incredible facility will be an inspiring location for STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) students for decades to come. We are delighted to have been part of the team that brought an old coal-fired power plant back to new life.
