Move-in begins at Elings, Sukup halls

ABE atrium

The three buildings share a four-story atrium: Elings Hall (left), Sukup Hall (center) and the Biorenewables Research Laboratory (right).

The first tenants occupied Elings Hall last week, one of two buildings that are the new home to the agricultural and biosystems engineering department. Its partner, Sukup Hall, contains research and teaching labs of all sizes. The two wings complete the biorenewables complex, phase 1 of which (Biorenewables Research Laboratory) opened in spring 2010. ABE faculty, staff and graduate students are relocating this summer from Davidson Hall (completed in 1922), Industrial Ed II (1926) and the National Swine Research/Information Center. Most of the moving should be complete by July 1, and the department will welcome students there when fall semester begins in August. Photos by Bob Elbert.
