A crane lifted heavy equipment onto the roof of The Arthur S. DeMoss Learning Center at Liberty University this week. All four floors were shut down for four hours Wednesday while construction continues on the third floor.
The project, begun after Spring Break this year, calls for 45,669 square feet of expanded computer lab and study space. There will be several offices, a “quiet study zone” area, a conference/seminar room, computer workstations and restrooms. An elevator is being installed in the middle of the space.
The work is scheduled to be completed this fall.
The DeMoss Learning Center was originally erected in 1985 in honor of the late Arthur S. DeMoss, a generous benefactor, Liberty University board member and powerful Christian witness.
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.
