Construction starts on new home for Del E. Webb School of Construction program
A groundbreaking ceremony in early 2012 launched the Block 12/College Avenue Commons building project, the largest infrastructure investment in the Del E. Webb School of Construction program’s 54-year history. The building will create additional permanent space and state-of-the-art facilities needed to accommodate student growth and further DEWSC as a leader in construction management programs.
The multi-use building will exemplify cutting-edge construction and best practices in sustainable design. Specialty mechanical and electrical teaching spaces will allow students to see how the building operates. Collaborative workspaces, teaching studios and social areas will enable students to work together on in-classroom and out-of-classroom projects. The building will also be home to retail and auditorium space, fostering a connection to our community.
The estimated completion date is 2014.
