After nearly a year of construction preceded by a year-plus of planning, a significant remodeling of Lagomarcino Hall's north end for the School of Education is in the home stretch. When spring semester starts on Jan. 12, the temporary plywood walls, dust and noise should be gone, and the first floor in full use. Much of the remodeling on the lower and second floors is complete.

Key components of the $5.4 million project, which grew several times over its duration, include a new administrative suite for the School of Education, a relocated and accessible north entrance to Lagomarcino and entry atrium for the school, three state-of-the-art classrooms consolidated along one corridor, and a sprinkler system and new heating/cooling systems in the School of Education spaces.
