With a $128.3 million budget, this 5-story building renovation increases the area from 260,000 square feet to 300,000 square feet. A large portion of the exterior will be updated and a new 3-level atrium, a new auditorium, student lounges and meeting spaces, and a new bookstore will all be added. Renovations of food service areas and a bowling alley are also a part of this project. Inspections include reinforced concrete, shotcrete, masonry, proprietary anchors, ultrasonic welding and fireproofing.
