When Will Huntsman Hall be Completed?
By Ken Snyder
The question I get asked more than any other is: “When will the building be done?”
Let me give you the latest. We pushing hard to have the building open for classes in the fall of 2015, but it’s looking like that probably won’t happen. We are pretty sure it will be open and ready for business by January of 2016. We expect completion sometime during the fall of 2015.
There are some key milestones you can track. When students arrive for the Fall 2014 semester, Huntsman Hall will be taking shape but it won’t yet have a roof. About the time students are taking finals at the end of Fall 2014 semester, Huntsman Hall will have a roof and it should be fully enclosed and protected from the weather.
There will still be a lot of work to do.
It’s a great time to be a Huntsman Hall building watcher. As the weather gets better, the work accelerates. Before you know it, Huntsman Hall will be one of the first things people see when they come to campus. I look out the window, or walk around the project site, at least two times per day – and sometimes a lot more often. Right now, it is a building that is constantly changing.
I think I’ll go look out the window and see what it looks like right now.
