When architects Darling and Pearson drafted designs for the Thermodynamics Building, they included a large laboratory space, as well as a wing for classrooms and offices. Unfortunately, strain on the building's budget meant that the initial plans were scaled back and only the laboratory section was completed. The building opened in 1909 and included laboratories where students could experiment with state of the art steam, gas, and hydraulic equipment. [2] [5]
