Budget update on GPE Hall

Due to a favorable bidding environment, the Geosciences, Physics & Engineering Hall project came in under budget. Knowing that there would be state funding for construction left over, we went to the legislature with a proposal to spend the extra funding on equipment that will be located outside the footprint of the new building. There was also funding available to be spent on equipment and other projects within the GPE Hall.
