NDSU’s STEM Classroom and Lab Building now has most of the glass installed on the north, south and west sides of the building. The east side of the building will be enclosed later. Workers continue to use the open east side to bring large materials into the building.
Other construction highlights:
- The exterior brick has been washed to remove marks from the building process.
- The main entrance on the south side is taking shape. This is where students will enter from the bus loop.
- The first-floor active learning classroom is now framed. The classroom’s design will allow for several types of classroom activities, such as group work, discussions and lectures. It will have round tables that seat nine people. The tables will be connected to monitors, so students can share content with the entire class. The classroom will be able to accommodate as many as 135 students.
- The hallways and some classrooms are painted on the second and third floors.
Construction is scheduled to be completed in November 2015. The building will open in January 2016.
