Construction continued in the late fall months to enclose the Richard S. Shineman Center for Science, Engineering and Innovation with windows, walls and doors in preparation for winter, according to Facilities and Design Project Coordinator Allen Bradberry. The state-of-the-art building, at left, is on pace to open in fall 2013. Above, a 13,700-square-foot addition to Wilber Hall completed this summer includes this lounge.
Contractors have drilled the 240th and final geothermal well to help heat and cool the new Science and Engineering Innovation Corridor.
“With that, this completes over 22.7 miles of drilling and [nearly] 46 miles of piping that went into the wells,” said Allen Bradberry, pictured far right, the college’s liaison with construction companies working on the sciences project.
