The University of Rhode Island broke ground Monday on a new Center for Chemical and Forensic sciences.

The school says the 135,000-square-foot building will triple the amount of teaching lab space and nearly double the amount of research lab space for chemistry and forensic studies.

The school says the $68 million center will strengthen URI's position as a leader in the teaching of health and life sciences and will serve about 7,000 students. About 40 percent of the school's degree programs require at least one chemistry class.
