We do not prohibit it, however, our recent addition to the sciences was a 3 story no natural gas research & lab facility-.which I now wish we HAD installed gas. It's very frustrating to go "next door" to do anything that requires using gas. Our Freshman and Sophomore chem classes are held in the new facility and the students don't have any exposure to Bunsen burners until their Junior year unless they work as a lab assistant for the department.

Is the installation of plumbed natural gas still allowed in new science buildings?
I assume so. On the other hand-
I was wondering if anyone absolutely prohibits the installation of natural gas and if so, why?
