Selection of construction management services for the Engineering Academic Building project is one of the topics to be discussed by the University of Oklahoma Board of Regents at its regular meeting Tuesday, Oct. 27, in Lawton.
The meeting will begin at 2:30 p.m. in the McCasland Foundation Ballroom AB at Cameron University, 2800 West Gore Blvd., in Lawton, with items submitted by Rogers State University, followed by Cameron University and OU.
The board will consider a proposal for at-risk construction management services for the Engineering Academic Building project. In May, the board approved the project, which will house the biomedical engineering facility. This new academic and biomedical engineering research building to be constructed in the Engineering Quadrangle will provide up to 90,000 gross feet of space to include reconfigurable and dual-use research and teaching laboratories, team rooms, forum rooms, offices, classrooms and a 150-person lecture hall. As now planned, the building will be designed to also include instructional laboratories for introductory classes offered through the departments of chemistry and biochemistry and microbiology and plant biology.
The next meeting of the OU Board of Regents is currently scheduled for Dec. 1 and 2 in Norman.
