OSU regents approve new buildings in Stillwater, Tulsa
A new civil engineering building on the Stillwater campus and a new academic building to serve OSU-Tulsa and the OSU Center for Health Sciences, both located in Tulsa, got the official nod Friday.
GOODWELL — The Oklahoma State University Board of Regents gave approval Friday to begin the selection process for construction manager who will help design and build a new civil engineering building on the Stillwater campus.
Board documents show the old building is “inefficient and inconveniently located for deliveries” and that the engineering department has wanted to replace it for quite some time.
Planning for the new engineering building, which will be located in the northwest part of the campus, began in March 2003.
The new building would resolve the engineering department's issues with its old building and provide state-of-the-art facilities for scholarly research in the field.
Funding for the project will come from private donations, in-kind contributions and other “legally available funds,” documents show.
Regents also officially got the ball rolling on a second building to serve OSU's Tulsa campuses.
The board approved the hiring of architect to assist OSU officials in designing and building a new academic building to serve OSU-Tulsa and the OSU Center for Health Sciences, both located in Tulsa.
