Sixty-three years after it opened its doors, Scaife Hall is about to get a new west wing to help it adapt to the ways medical school students are taught now, according to Pitt Med magazine.

Pending some approvals, construction is predicted to start later this year on the $129 million project, which includes 110,000 square feet of new construction and 47,000 square feet of renovations. The project is designed by Payette, an architectural firm in Boston.

The addition will supply high-efficiency HVAC, plumbing, and electrical to the rest of the building, while offering seven floors of contemporary learning space.

Some of the changes include:

  • A renovated Falk Library of the Health Sciences with an entrance on Lothrop Street, making it more convenient for all health sciences students.
  • A terrace cafe on Terrace Street.
