When complete in January 2014, the $13.8 million Goff Health Sciences and Technology Building at the Oak Ridge campus will include space for new programs, faculty offices, new classrooms and new labs. The building will include 14 classrooms, seven labs, 37 faculty
offices, an adjunct faculty area, three conference rooms, two lecture halls, 15 student study areas and four computer labs. The building will be LEED-certified for energy efficiency and have geothermal heating and cooling.

The Health Sciences and Technology Building is scheduled for completion in January 2014. The timeline  is subject to change based on weather conditions and other factors.

You can see the footprint of the building. The big hole in the “U” of the building is a rain garden that will catch all of the run-off water instead of sending it to the retaining pond. This is one of the LEED attributes of the building.  At the end of this month, we should see the foundation coming out of the ground.
