More new construction will begin at Bradley University.
University President Gary Roberts says the Board of Trustees has approved plans for a new business and engineering complex on the hilltop.
Roberts announced the Trustees’ action in his latest “Campus Update” on the University’s website.
The new complex will be constructed along Main Street, adjacent to Renaissance Coliseum, and replace the current Jobst and Baker Halls on the Bradley campus.
Roberts says the new complex will house the Caterpillar College of Engineering and Technology and the Foster College of Business.
Roberts said on his online announcement, “It will enable collaboration between disciplines and provide cutting edge technology and facilities that will enhance our outstanding academic programs.”
“With board approval, we will soon put the project out for bids,” Roberts said.
Roberts says a 3D model of the proposed building is located in the Hayden Clark Alumni Center in the Shaheen Hall of Pride near the front entrance.
Roberts is asking for the patience and support of the Bradley community while efforts move forward. No timetable toward construction and completion of the project were announced.
“I assure you it will improve our infrastructure, increase our space and enrich the programs we already have in place,” Roberts said.
