The fifth floor, home of the School of Education, has been completely gutted and rebuilt, according to Bernotas, with new walls, new carpet, along with upgraded lighting and electrical. “The partitions when you go and look at it, they're white with a lot of glass. The intent is to bring in a lot of light.”
The floor was completed in 2019. The $8 million renovation covered 65,000 square feet.
- Similar work was done for the Department of Economics, which takes up about half of the fourth floor.
- On the first floor, the Department of Statistics has a new entrance onto Posvar’s main corridor, instead of tucked away by the elevators.
