Site cleared as Justin addition construction begins
Wednesday, July 13, 2011
Work on the 13,180-square-foot addition to Kansas State University's Justin Hall is underway. Leveled earth has replaced landscaping in the building's west lawn. Giant holes have been dug to support water and sewer improvements. Lovers Lane became a one-way street headed east and Justin's main south entrance is closed.
The general contractor for the project is Hutton Construction, Wichita.
The privately funded addition to the home of K-State's College of Human Ecology will cost about $5 million. The building will be a model for sustainable design and will seek LEED -- Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design -- new construction silver certification.
The addition will house space for student services, student collaborative workspace, administrative offices and two state-of-the-art classrooms that will accommodate approximately 100 students each.
