The department will move to a newly renovated building - the Old Whitney Hall. Demolition and asbestos abatement are complete and construction work is advancing on several fronts. Wall framing and dry wall are well underway along with runs for mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems.
The project entails constructing two classrooms in former lounge areas. Old dorm rooms will be converted into office space, testing labs and support space for the math department.
Work also involves code and energy updates, new windows and a new roof. Work will be complete in August 2014.
