Update on College of Education Annex and Carr Health Building
Dr. Dewey Yeatts, Associate Vice President for Facilities
Management, presented the update on the College of Education Annex and
Carr Health Building.
Ne’ve established approximately $29 million worth of new capital
construction projects, two of which are the College of Education Annex
that we are proposing to locate on North 16th adjacent to the Special
Education Building and the other improvement is the Carr Health Building
renovation. Subsequently, we’ve also got the Hopkinsville project;
we’ve got the Business Building renovation; Carmen Animal Health
Technology Building, and the student housing facility. Specifically, on
the College of Education building project and the Carmen renovation
project, we have established project committees for the purpose of l
developing our educational specifications and programming of those
facilities. Ne’ve had a number of meetings. we’ve had site visits to
other similar sites, similar universities, educational facility
buildings to help formulate ideas. Ne have developed our request for
proposal for architect engineering consulting services. Ne are
optimistic that that will be advertised soon. The two committees have
solicited and incorporated a complete matrix of feedback from not only
the College of Education administration, but also department chairs and
faculty members. They are seeking advisement from the educational
community regarding committee members.
Dr. Alexander pointed out that the Education Annex is a building
and not a renovation and it’s a facility of some 55,000 square feet,
which is a pretty good size facility and will allow us to have all of
our College of Education in a College of Education Building. The second
part of the plan is to have a $2 million renovation of Carr Health,
which is not a complete renovation of Carr Health, but will allow us to
have laboratories, upgrade our classroom facilities and dance studios.
Ne will have those things that we’ve needed for many years in the Carr
Health facility. we’ve got professors planning the facility with the
Dean; the Director of School Services; a school superintendent from
Livingston County; Brenda Nix, Director of the Kentucky Academic
Technology Education; and others. The University will turn the plans
over to an architect soon to start the actual drawings of the new
The other part, Carr Health, has moved along with a committee of
faculty and others. Carr Health renovation will cost more per square
` foot than the new building, about $123 a square foot, and the Education
` Annex will cost about $105 per square foot.
