SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The regents unanimously approved a UI request to continue several capital-improvement projects Thursday.

UI officials gained permission to build a $90 million College of Pharmacy building and reconstruct the first floor of the Main Library.

UI officials sought approval to hire Shive-Hattery for an estimated $9 million to $10 million reconstruction project of the Hancher parking lots and ramps.

UI officials were authorized to hire a construction manager agent for the Voxman Music Building/Clapp Replacement facility project because the required work exceeded available staffing levels. The agent will help coordinate work for management staff and also increase the number of firms able to work on the project and divide the project into small construction packages.

Vice President of Student Life Tom Rocklin submitted an updated report on the construction of the West Campus residence hall located on Grand Avenue between Hillcrest and Rienow Halls. The hall would house approximately 450 students and be designed for numerous living-learning communities.
