Grand Valley State University plans to build an 84,000-square-foot health sciences building and two-level parking deck in downtown Grand Rapids, Mich.
The university's board of trustees has approved funding for the five-story facility. The $37.5 million for the building project and $9 million for the parking project will come from donor support, university-issued bonds and campus development funds.
The building will contain four classrooms, 15 teaching laboratories, a computer lab and 90 faculty and staff offices and parking spaces. The project also includes student study spaces, student organization space and work/break rooms.
Construction is expected to begin in December and be completed in May 2018.
The architect is Fishbeck, Thompson, Carr and Huber, and the construction manager is Rockford Construction Company.
