OGDEN, UTAH — The Noorda Engineering, Applied Science and Technology Building is now complete at Weber State University’s Ogden campus.
The project, named after Utah philanthropists Ray and Tye Noorda, is a partnership between Big-D Construction, Weber State University and the Division of Facilities Construction and Management.
Big-D Construction was awarded the project in 2019 and commenced construction onsite in March 2020, the same month as the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus a global pandemic.
The $52 million, 130,417-square-foot modern classroom building located on the north end of the campus, will serve as the new home for the College of Engineering, Applied Science and Technology. The building will provide classroom and laboratory space for mechanical engineering, electrical and computer engineering, computer science, professional sales and product design and development. The new facility will also house classrooms and administrative spaces for early college NUAMES (Northern Utah Academy for Math, Engineering and Science) High School program.
Four centers will also be housed in the building: The Concept Center, the Center for Technology Outreach, the National Center for Automotive Science and Technology, and the Alan E. Hall Center for Sales Excellence, states a release, adding other features include ADA accessibility, a plaza and outdoor seating areas.
“When we started the Noorda Weber State project we were met with a lot of challenges and unknowns,” said executive chairman Rob Moore, Big-D Companies, in a statement
“Despite those obstacles, we not only completed the Noorda project on time and within budget, but navigated through COVID safely while facing labor shortages, material pricing spikes and material extended deliveries, which in my 46-year career at Big-D, I have never experienced before. I’m extremely proud of our team and all those involved, and we are excited for the bright young minds that will utilize this educational facility for generations to come.”
