Pending approval from the Iowa Legislature, pharmacy students at the University of Iowa could see a new facility within the next five years.

The $67 million proposal is in conference committee in the Legislature and has not yet been approved. 

If approved, construction on a new pharmacy building would begin in 2015 and conclude in 2018 because of the complexity of the project. The new location would sit across the street from the UI’s current facility.

The building ranks as the least-energy-efficient building on campus per square foot.

According to a UI energy report, the building used roughly 5 million kilowatt hours of electrical energy in fiscal 2009 — 300,000 more kilowatt hours than all of the buildings on the Pentacrest combined.

The UI added a wing to the building roughly 20 years ago.

Despite that update, the building still has only two classrooms for students and a practice lab too small for the college’s need.
