The domino effect now plays out on USU campus
Now that we’ve found the architect we want to hire to lead the construction on our new building, people are asking me when construction will officially get underway. That’s a difficult question to answer because the start point of the timeline is out of our control.
It’s what I call the domino effect. Before we can begin work on our new building, there are a number of things, which are out of our control, that need to happen first. For starters, the construction of the new Agricultural Building needs to be completed.
After that, the tentative sequence as Facilities has explained it to me, is that the College of Agriculture and Department of Journalism and Communication faculty need to move into the new building. Next there will be some sort of renovation of the Animal Science Building. Then, I’m told, the Department of Mathematics and Statistics will move out of the Lund Hall. Then we we will demolish Lund Hall. And only after the demolition work on Lund Hall is complete can we actually begin construction on our building.
As for time schedule, I have heard that they expect the Agricultural Building to be completed in February of 2012. I am told that the Department of Mathematics and Statistics people will move out of Lund Hall sometime in between May 2012 and August 2012.
So, as you watch construction on new Agricultural Building progress, realize you are also watching the goal of our new building becoming a reality. It’s all part of the domino effect.
