Regents to vote on new
Cougar News Services
The UH System Board of Regents will meet
at 4 p.m. today in Room 220, Ezekiel Cullen Building, to determine the
status of a proposed new science,
engineering and classroom building at
UH. If approved, the building would be located west of Science and Research
I and Science and Research II, south of
the Houston Science Center.
The building would be approximately 200,000
square feet in area and would consist of two components. One would house
11 classrooms and a 550-seat
teaching theater, and the other would
house wet and dry science and engineering research laboratories and common
use service areas (including a clean
room, an X-ray laboratory, computational
research laboratories and administrative offices).
The proposed source of funds for the building
is $51 million in bond proceeds.
