He said that the engineering building, Benedum Hall, which was built in 1971 and is slated for $52 million of renovation, needs to be modernized -- from electrical systems to ventilation -- to support today's research.
Dr. Pack said the improvements at the Benedum and the connected Parran and Crabtree buildings -- which serve the Graduate School of Public Health -- are the farthest along.
"The kind of research that people do changes all the time," said Dr. Pack. "The latest thing for us here is the big emphasis on nanotechnology. This requires a lot of specialized facilities in terms of very clean environments where there is no dust or anything. You need vibration-free work areas. For a lot of the work now, the electrical requirements are very extensive."
Dr. Pack believes the renovations will enable the university to use space more efficiently. A news release noted that renovation is considerably cheaper than new construction.
