Construction of a 1,200-square-foot addition to the Eberly College of Business and Information Technology commenced on Thursday, August 4, 2011.
The addition will be located off of the existing atrium area on the first floor of the building. The new space will be used as a meeting area and a gallery to honor alumni from the College of Business. Also included is a small addition which will expand the seating area of the Eberly Café.
Construction is estimated to take approximately three months to complete.
Areas adjacent to the addition will be closed to pedestrians during construction. Signage will be posted to direct staff and students safely around the area.
The Eberly Atrium will be named in recognition of a gift made to IUP by Mr. Terry Serafini of Pittsburgh, Pa. Mr. Serafini is a 1961 graduate in Mathematics Education.
The project is being managed by IUP’s
Engineering and Construction Group.
