Project Description:

The scope of this project includes the renovation of Building 16 for general assignment classrooms. Improvements are expected to include classroom reconfiguration, new finishes in classrooms and corridors, and enhanced entries and lobbies.

Beginning in Summer 2008, Building 16 will complete the planned renovation which include fully remodeled bathrooms, new lobby designs and an interior wheelchair lift. The new classrooms have been in full use beginning in the Spring semester of 2008 and will remain a functioning general lecture classroom facility throughout the next phase of work.

Project Benefits:

This project will complete the work started in CIP I. This building’s central location on the CSM campus makes it ideal for use as general assignment classrooms. This project will enable Building 16 to compliment Building 14 in meeting that objective. These classrooms will be outfitted with “smart classroom” technology which will keep CSM at the forefront of contemporary learning centers.
