Fort Wayne, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Indiana Tech is planning its construction of a new 60,000-square-foot academic center in Fort Wayne.
The facility will be built just north of the Wilfred Uytengsu Sr. Center and will have an academic wing and a library wing, joined at a rotunda area with a multi-flex auditorium and theater.
The academic wing will have two stories plus an unfinished lower level for future completion as needed.
The library wing also will have two levels. The library will contain two state-of-the-art computer facilities and several meeting and study rooms.
The rotunda will accommodate a café, and space for art exhibitions, while the two-story multi-flex auditorium and theater will provide space that is adaptable for specific performances, presentations, seminars, and lectures.
The estimated cost of the project is $15 million, and the university has a goal of raising half that total before starting construction.
Ground-breaking for the project is tentatively planned for May 2013. Construction is expected to take about 18 months, making the academic center ready to open in January 2015.
