New Construction on Campus

Construction 2350 StudentsDuring the fall semester, students in Instructor Wes Collins’ Introduction to Construction course tested their new-found savvy with the completion of an actual campus building: specifically, a coup intended to house live pigeons while they are being studied by the Department of Psychology.  According to Collins, roughly 70 students, primarily from the construction management, architecture, and interior design programs, worked on the building.  “This was truly a university project as individuals from around campus were part of this, including the College of Technology, College of Arts and Sciences, Department of Design and Construction, and Campus Operations all played a part.”  Cordula Mora, Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology, echoed Collins’ sentiments, stating, “This project was truly a collaborative effort by several departments around campus with great student involvement.”Kurt Hofmeister [1962-2012]

The original design of the building was created by Kurt Hofmeister, a former instructor of this construction course. Unfortunately, Kurt passed away following a heart attack the summer before the building was erected. The College of Technology paid tribute to Kurt this past week.
