New Academic Building Being Constructed on Campus, to Open in Fall

A new academic building is under construction on Pruden Street, north of Echlin Hall on the main campus. The 4,800-square-foot building is on the site of the former fire science barn that was damaged last spring by high winds.

The single-story steel and concrete building will be ready by the fall. It will have two classrooms, a computer lab, conference room, faculty offices and reception area and will be home to the University’s new Math Zone program. The building will also have fire science laboratory space, including the burn units.

Designed by Christiaan Dinkaloo Architects and constructed by the Pat Munger Construction Company, the building has finished metal panels on the exterior similar to those used on the Beckerman Recreation Center and Soundview Residence Hall.

Due to the construction of the new building, there will be very limited parking at Echlin Hall throughout the summer.
