Portland State University Neuberger Hall Groundbreaking
The ground has officially been broken for Portland State University's $70 million modernization of Neuberger Hall. Fortis Construction is working with Hacker on the 217,000-square-foot facility, which was built in the 1960s.
According to the PSU Foundation, "In summer 2015, the Oregon State Legislature approved its most significant investment in a PSU capital project for the renovation of Neuberger Hall. The $60 million in bond funding is to be met with $10 million in private philanthropy. No tuition dollars will be spent on this investment. It is critical for the access and success of PSU’s students to elevate this essential campus facility into a high-tech, high-profile, global academic space." The renovated facility will house vital student services such as admissions, financial aid, academic advising and career services, as well as classrooms and laboratories supporting programs in the arts and sciences, including design, theater, English, psychology, world languages and gender studies, among others. It will also significantly expand and enhance space for the Fariborz Maseeh Department of Mathematics + Statistics and its computer laboratory.
