After considering input from the many stakeholders that comprise the Webb community, the Board of Trustees selected the Bentel & Bentel design for our new Academic Center. Located on the second terrace in close proximity to Stevenson Taylor Hall and the Livingston Library, the Academic Center will be readily accessible by students and faculty. The Center will house classrooms and lecture halls, student team rooms and conference rooms, faculty offices, and the Couch Lab (our computer technology center). It will be a modern teaching facility which stylistically complements the Georgian architecture of Stevenson Taylor Hall. We are nearing the final stages of Schematic Design, roughly equivalent to the preliminary design phase in shipbuilding. Please check back here for updates!
At Homecoming, we look forward to updating alumni on the design status. We anticipate start of construction in early 2018 and opening of the Academic Center for the 2019 fall semester.
