University Board of Trustees approves expenditures for planning and design of H-STEM Complex.
At its regular meeting in Houghton today, the Michigan Technological University Board of Trustees approved expenditures to complete planning and design for what is currently being referred to as the H-STEM Engineering and Health Technologies Complex (or H-STEM Complex). Expenditures for planning and design are not to exceed $3.1 million.
In late 2018, the Michigan Legislature granted planning authorization for the H-STEM Complex, a $44.7 million capital outlay project that will comprise to-be-constructed shared and flexible lab spaces co-located with renovated classrooms and learning spaces in the Chemical Sciences and Engineering Building. The project request included a proposed $29.7 million in State support, with $15 million in matching funds.
