  • Architect: Lawrence Group Architects

    Contractor: Vaughn Construction

    Design Stage: Schematic Design

    Estimated Cost: $10,600,000

    Estimated Completion: May 2022 (Projected)

    This project will provide much needed space for students pursuing a minor in filmography and media studies and will provide a significant gain in dedicated teaching labs that achieve a high degree of acoustical performance for specialized course work.     

    Status:  The scope of work changed from a renovation project of an older building to a new construction project after it was discovered that the Aqua Sports building’s structural system had deteriorated due to decades of chlorine exposure to the point that is not fiscally reasonable to restore the building.  The Aqua Sports building will be used only for storage for the time being and will be decommissioned and demolished later.  New site assessment is currently underway.

    Next Milestone: Selection of site.
