Much More Progress: Concrete, Pipes, and Walls
Denark Construction has been working from dawn to dusk to keep the new Residence Hall on schedule for an August 2016 open date.
This week 45 crew members poured concrete for the foundation of the building and walls are beginning to take form. An elevator pit has been shaped and lines are being laid for water, sewage and electricity.
Stairwells are being created and the building is starting to take shape.
Speaking of shape, this building, when finished will have a unique "h" design that will provide a courtyard area, and rooms that will be more private and comfortable for students.
Total cost of the build will be about $28 million funded through agency funds and bonds. This is the first new residential facility to be built on campus since 1969.
