Construction on the Comal Building began in May 2013, and is scheduled to be complete in June 2014.
Classrooms and offices for the Department of Computer Science and the Department of Philosophy will be housed in the building, as well as a Philosophy dialogue room, said Nancy Nusbaum, associate vice president for Finance and Support Services. The estimated cost of the project is $13.85 million.
Interior demolition, exterior brick repair work and excavation for the new water service lines in the building have been completed. Replacement of the existing roof, installation of underground electrical service lines, structural steel framing and stairs, as well as the replacement of the window system, have yet to be completed.
