Kountz Kyle Biology Lab Renovation

Renovation is well underway at the University of Pine Bluff!  The 2 story, 35,000 sf Kountz Kyle Biology Building was built in 1960 and is one of the most heavily utilized buildings on campus.

 

This renovation will add 5 classrooms,14 offices and 8 lab spaces as well as a modern lab arrangement.  There will also be general assembly areas for computer access and student interactions and a new greenhouse.  The project will be constructed to either Energy Star or LEED Silver standards.

The Kountz Kyle Bioloby Lab will also house the newest greenhouse on the UAPB campus.  This unique addition will allow students the opportunity to study hands on techniques for cultivating and growing a multitude of plants and vegetation.  It will also allow for long term research projects, some of which could last for decades.

East Harding Construction is proud to be a part of renovating and expanding the UAPB Kountz Kyle Biology Lab.  We are excited to see the difference the revitalization of this historic building will make for both, current students and future generations.

TEAM MEETING

April 2021

At this month’s team meeting, Van Tilbury, President & CEO, spoke on “Six Conditions of Empowerment” guiding the team into thinking about the East Harding Method of “People, Process & Product”.

He then turned the meeting over to Nathan Kerr, Field Operations Manager, who spoke on ownership and accountability.

We enjoyed Whole Hog BBQ and the unfamiliar atmosphere of getting together in person and reconnecting with coworkers that are normally in the field.  The guys did a great job of setting up the warehouse for social distancing and we all followed mask wearing protocols.

ARTSpace & ART WORKS

ARTSpace & ART WORKS

ARTSpace on Main & ART WORKS on Main

Arts & Science Center of Southeast Arkansas

Renovation is complete on ARTSpace and nearing completion on ART Works transforming this historic downtown commercial space on Main Street in Pine Bluff into a vibrant community arts and events space.  This exciting new expansion to the ASC campus, anchored by the ASC’s main building at 701 S. Main Street, will operate as a multi-purpose community arts and event space.

The two buildings feature the endowed Adam B. Robinson, Jr. Theater, a 70-seat black box theater for small, community-oriented productions (named in honor of the long-time ASC supporter and Board member); five apartments for resident artists with accompanying studios that can be used by the residents or rented to local artists; a community gallery for area artists to show and sell work; flexible workshop space for art classes, yoga classes, dance and culinary arts workshops, a tinkering makerspace, a wood shop, scene shop and costume shop; a small pottery studio and an outside “ART Yard” for large-scale projects and events.

The re-imagined buildings contribute to the Historic District and incorporate some of the original features, including an advertising mural inside for O.K. Dairy Creamery, currently ARTSpace.

Fun Feature for the Art Gallery…

In keeping with the historic design of the building, the retro bay doors were left in place and create a fun, open air option.
