On Friday, Aug. 11, the University of Nebraska Board of Regents approved a program statement for a privately-funded, $11.6 million addition to UNO's Biomechanics Research Building, moving the project another step forward.
Under the proposal, the project will more than double the building's size and connect all three levels, providing new laboratories, instructional space, offices and collaborative space.The Biomechanics Research Building opened in the fall of 2013, establishing UNO at the forefront of the research field as the world's first stand-alone building dedicated solely to this area of study.
The project still has to move through several steps, including a final round of Board of Regents approval, before construction will begin. The program statement includes a proposed construction start date of April 2018, with work running through September 2019.
