Several construction projects have broken ground or are nearing completion in the city of Morgantown as the students and faculty eagerly anticipate the new educational buildings.
The new Advanced Engineering Research Building, pictured, is just one of the many ongoing projects. It will add 22,000 square feet of flexible and environmentally safe new laboratory and research space as well as an 8,000 square feet clean room to meet the needs of high-technology learning and discovery in the new millennium. Offices, classrooms, computer classrooms, learning center, and graduate student space will use 29,000 square feet in the new building. The new building will be 60,000 assignable square feet with an unfinished space for future completion of 15,000 square feet. The building will form a key quad border in addition to the agricultural science building, the Evansdale Library, NRCCE, and ERB. It will be 4 stories total and 95,000 GSF. The building will be fully integrated into the utility infrastructure for the Evansdale Campus and will have energy efficient systems.
