The new Engineering Building is three stories, with the first two floors finished out for current engineering programs. The third floor was shelled out for future engineering programs and faculty. The Engineering Building contains classrooms, faculty offices, lecture halls, student collaboration spaces and laboratories for mechanical, petroleum and aerospace engineering programs. The building is a protected steel frame and concrete structure, slab on grade, with exterior features to include limestone, glass and metal panels consistent with other structures on both campuses. The project includes a new parking lot for approximately 140 student and faculty vehicles. The project will be the University’s first LEED project, with features including solar voltaic cells, irrigation using pond water and turf pavers for fire department access.
