Wyoming companies have been selected for the architect and engineering services for a major upgrade of College of Engineering and Applied Sciences facilities at the University of Wyoming.
Governor Mead and others have announced The University of Wyoming’s College of Engineering and Applied Sciences project.
The UW Board of Trustees on Friday authorized a contract with Malone Belton Abel P.C. of Laramie and GSG Architecture P.C. of Casper for the architect and engineering services work.
Mead says the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences project is the largest construction project in UW’s history.
It will consist of two parts: construction of a new Energy Engineering Research Facility (EERF), and a major renovation and expansion of the Engineering Building near the heart of the UW campus.
The EERF project is funded by a $15 million appropriation from the Wyoming State Legislature, matched by $15 million in private donations. Construction could begin in the fall of 2014, with completion by the spring of 2016.
