New ABE Building included in the biennial budget request approved by Trustees
On August 26, 2016 the Purdue University Board of Trustees approved a Ten-Year Capital Plan that positions the ABE building renovation and addition as the top University priority for the upcoming 2017-2019 Legislative Capital Request.
The three-story portion of the existing building would be renovated and a new multi-level facility would be constructed in the footprint of the current one-story portion of the building. As a result of growth in our programs and the condition and capabilities of some existing ABE facilities, we currently have programs located in 10 buildings beyond the ABE building. The renovation and building addition capital project would result in the quantity, quality, and type of space needed to support our students, faculty, and staff in their learning, discovery, and engagement efforts into the foreseeable future.
Additional details will be forthcoming in the coming weeks along with information on how you can help make the project a reality.
