Architect:

Contractor:

Size:

54,334 Gross Square Feet (GSF)
32,061 Assignable Square Feet (ASF)

Anticipated Completion:

January 2019

The Interdisciplinary Engineering & Academic Building (EIEAB) will be located in the heart of the campus, west of the Library and just north of the Student Union.

The facility will include six engineering teaching labs, two discipline-specific computer labs, eight 60-seat general classrooms, and offices and support spaces. Although particular emphasis will be placed on preparation of engineering students, this building will also address flexible space requirements for other disciplines as needed.

The EIEAB consists of one three-story building; it will comply with the master plan consistent with the campus brick and vernacular inspired by the architecture of Louis Khan. The added architectural brick, colorful metal panel cladding elements and details, as well as the thick brick exterior wall and shading devices, are important visual elements in maintaining the existing modern aesthetic appearance of the campus.

The approximately 7,000 square-foot West Physical Science Building has been demolished to make room for the new building. The EIEAB will be complete in January 2019.
