    The new School of Management campus is starting to take shape.

    A steel frame has emerged east of the intersection of Whitney Avenue and Sachem Street, formed by 4,750 pieces of steel. The building’s glass facade will be installed next, according to the School of Management’s website. This goal has been long awaited for and thanks to the entire administration team, the staff and construction workers it was able to be obtained within the expected time range. There were only a few minor set backs but that wasn’t a problem for the construction team since they had equipment to be able to work on a certain area when it got dark, that way they weren’t obligated to work only during the day.

    The new campus is named after Edward Evans ’64, who donated $50 million to its construction in late 2010. It was designed by Lord Norman Foster ARC ’62, and should be done by 2013. The University broke ground on the project last spring. Everything went by so smoothly that all there was to do was wait patiently until everything came into the picture.
