The fifth floor, home of the School of Education, is being completely gutted and rebuilt, according to Bernotas, with new walls, new carpet, along with upgraded lighting and electrical. “The partitions when you go and look at it, they're white with a lot of glass. The intent is to bring in a lot of light.”
The first half of the floor is now done and work should be completed on the second half by the end of 2019. The $8 million renovation will cover 65,000 square feet.
- Similar work was done over the summer for the Department of Economics, which takes up about half of the fourth floor.
- On the first floor, the Department of Statistics has a new entrance onto Posvar’s main corridor, instead of tucked away by the elevators.
