Spaces incorporated into the project will include faculty and administrative offices, conference rooms, classrooms, graduate and undergraduate areas, library, and engineering laboratories. In addition, the project will construct 71 new parking spaces adjacent to the new facility. The project will include asbestos abatement and partial demolition of the existing 38,000 sq.ft.
