The UNCG Board of Trustees approved the external design for UNCG’s new Nursing and Instructional Building on Friday at the September board meeting.
The approved renderings showcase a five-story, 180,000-square-foot building with an atrium that connects the two sides of the building. The School of Nursing will occupy part of the building, with classrooms and laboratory space for biology, chemistry and other health and human sciences disciplines occupying the remaining space.
The Nursing and Instructional Building is slated to open in the summer of 2020. The building will be built at the same site as the current McIver Building, which will be demolished next summer.
The new facility is made possible thanks to $105 million in state funds from the Connect NC Bond, which was passed by North Carolina voters in the spring of 2016.
