Construction Begins on New ORFE Building

April 11, 2007

Construction is under way on a building that will bring the social science and engineering sectors of campus under one roof.

"Located between Mudd Library and Wallace Hall and scheduled for completion in August 2008, the new structure will house the Operations Research and Financial Engineering (ORFE) department and the Center for Information Technology Policy (ITP)."

"Construction will be quite heavy during some periods, but we will do our best to minimize disruptions for people who work in that area or travel through it," said Catherine Altadonna, senior project manager in the Office of Design and Construction. "For example, the construction work will not block Shapiro Walk, which had been temporarily rerouted during some initial site preparation during the fall semester."
