Due to the increased student population when the M-1 students start to attend the Rockford campus (Fall 2017) the COM wants to study the feasibility of building a 2284 Sc.B. interior second floor inside of the existing 2-story lobby space. It would require that a new structural system be installed to support the new floor loads. Programmatic improvements would include 12 individual study rooms and larger areas for casual seating on the second floor. The first floor will be left as a large open area for large group events.
