DURANGO – The official groundbreaking for Fort Lewis College’s new Geosciences, Physics and Engineering Building will take place on Friday, October 17 at 12 p.m. at the northwest corner of Berndt Hall along Rim Drive. Everyone is welcome.
Getting the new facility was a decade-long effort by FLC officials, faculty and area legislators. With significant growth in the College’s geosciences, physics and engineering programs, as well as a need for updated laboratories, the new building was a top construction priority for FLC. The $35 million project is due to be completed in 2016.
Colorado Senator Ellen Roberts and Representative Mike McLachlan, both of whom were involved in securing state funding for the new facility, will be on hand to celebrate the day.
