New Sangren Hall Building Project

New Sangren Hall Concept

bullet8-8gray-dk.jpg The plans for a new Sangren Hall construction project were presented at the February 18, 2010 meeting of the WMU Board of Trustees.  In March the complete Schematic Design plans were delivered to the State for review and approval by the Department of Management and Budget and by the Legislature's Joint Capital Outlay Subcommittee.

bullet8-8gray-dk.jpg Construction started fall 2010.  Preparation of the construction site began in May with the demolition of the south wing of the existing building, containing the large lecture halls and the Education Library. 

bullet8-8gray-dk.jpg The Education Library has been relocated into temporary quarters in the ground level of Sangren Hall.  The Registrar has rescheduled all classes usually held in the large lecture halls to other locations on campus.

bullet8-8gray-dk.jpg The total project is scheduled to be complete in August 2012 with classes held in the new building fall 2012.

bullet8-8gray-dk.jpg Demolition diverted 93% of all waste on this project from landfills. This is in excess of 29,000 Tons.

bullet8-8gray-dk.jpg In accordance with LEED MRc4, 31.84% of all material used in Sangren Hall was recycled. This is based on dollar value.
