Renovation Weber

The sound of hammers and drills echoed across campus this summer, with the completion of the new Tracy Hall Science Center (see more on page 32) and renovation of the Wattis Business building and Stewart Library.

Wattis Business reopened in August with a new heating, ventilation and air conditioning system, added fire suppression on the second floor, and high-efficiency LED lighting.

The Stewart Library’s renovation will continue through 2017. When finished, the building will feature quieter study and collaborative spaces for students, offices for faculty research, better natural lighting, easier elevator accessibility, a testing center and improved collection shelving.

The library is open to students and community patrons during normal hours throughout the renovation. The south wing of the library will be finished in December 2016, and the north wing will reopen in June 2017.
