Budget committee approves capital projects

The Board of Trustees budget committee on March 15 approved $44.995 million in funding for eight capital budget projects that recently were approved by the trustees property and facilities committee. (See March 4 University Times.)

The funded projects include additional student housing rooms in Lothrop Hall, replacement of air handling units at Chevron Science Center, construction of a greenhouse on the Langley Hall roof, renovation of the William Pitt Union’s ninth floor, expansion of Bouquet Gardens and creation/renovation of 13 physics labs as part of the mid-campus complex project on the Pittsburgh campus.

The budget also covers upgrades to Pitt-Bradford’s Fisher Hall and infrastructure upgrades to Pitt-Greensburg’s Smith Hall.

The fiscal year 2010 capital budget for the projects totals $45.985 million. Of that amount, $990,000 for the Lothrop Hall project previously had been approved by the budget committee.
