Work started this past semester and is expected to continue through next year on the new STEM academic building. Expect occasional traffic impacts on All American Drive due to materials deliveries and the expansion or connections made to subsurface utilities.
Ole Miss received a $25 million lead gift from the Gertrude C. Ford Foundation for construction of a new Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Building in the Science District of campus. The building will provide some 207,000 square feet. Due to the extreme size of this project, preparation of the site began before design completion. Preparation included removing the Smith Engineering Science Building, Central Heating Plant and Old Power Plant along All-American Drive. Also, all existing utilities in the area will be relocated. Project completion expected in the 2018-2019 academic year.
