Third floor construction on the Arthur S. DeMoss Learning Center is coming along smoothly.
Started in April, the project calls for more than 45,000 square feet of expanded computer lab and study space. There will be several offices and classrooms for the School of Engineering, a “quiet study zone,” a conference and seminar room, computer workstations, wireless connections, restrooms and an elevator.
The new facilities should be ready when classes start next month, said Charles Spence, the school's director of planning and new construction.
The DeMoss Learning Center was originally erected in 1985 in honor of the late Arthur S. DeMoss - a generous benefactor and Liberty University board member.
The building was remodeled and expanded in 2000 and now spans 500,000 square feet over four floors. The DeMoss building is the primary academic building on campus, and most general education classes are held there.
