On Feb. 20, construction began on Northwest Indian College’s new library and technology building, a project that will cost approximately $3 million. This will be the eighth building constructed on NWIC’s main campus as a result of the college’s $44 million capital campaign, which began in 2005. The building is scheduled to be completed by January 2014.
The almost 11,000-square-foot facility, designed by Zervas Group Architects, will essentially be two buildings under one roof, said Jay Conway, who is managing NWIC’s new campus construction.
The northern section of the building will house the college’s IT department, staff work rooms, labs and offices. The southern portion will house traditional library spaces, teens and children’s rooms, special collections, study areas and a large open space with the books and magazine stacks.
