Campus Construction Not Hit by Sluggish Economy

Despite a slow economy, one sector where construction is not being postponed is on college campuses. According to an article in The Chronicle of Higher Education, some universities are even trying to speed up projects to limit the damage done by rising construction costs. In its "Buildings and Grounds" Blog, The Chronicle had profiled (see here and here) the delay of at least one year on a $55 million science building at Lehigh University, located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania , then quickly "cleared up" speculation of a lack of funding and donations as the cause of the delay.

Through "Buildings and Grounds" Blog, The Chronicle tracks new campus building, sometimes including multimedia presentations of both new and updated construction at institutions of higher education. (This entry published by Liz Riley, a member of Womble Carlyle's construction law practice group.)
