EAU CLAIRE — University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire students, faculty and staff and community members are invited to participate in the "topping off" of the university's new Education Building Oct. 23.
From 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., individuals may sign the final cast concrete panel that will be placed atop the structure. The panel will be available for signing along the sidewalk on Park Avenue adjacent to the Education Building construction site.
Students, faculty, staff and community members are invited to join UW-Eau Claire Interim Chancellor Gilles Bousquet at 3:30 p.m. at the same location to watch the concrete panel be lifted by crane and put into place.
Construction on the $44.5 million Education Building began in May and is expected to be completed in November 2013. Classes are expected to begin in the new building in the spring semester of 2014.
