Board of Trustees approves increased project budget

Plans for the new ECE building are continuing, and the building continues to receive the approvals it needs to become a reality.

At the May 21, 2009, meeting of the University of Illinois Board of Trustees, the Board approved the updated total project budget. The approved budget for the building is now set at a maximum of $95 million. This updated project budget figure allows for flexibility in planning the most efficient and effective design for the new building.
