Special Remarks

Alan Mathew, Head of Purdue's Department of Animal Sciences, said: "I am especially proud that the Indiana livestock commodity groups and other industry partners stepped up to help fund our building. This tells me our ANSC programs are valued by those stakeholders, and they see even greater outcomes for us in the new buildings." 

 Anticipated Timeline:

  • NOW: Creighton Hall has been fully enclosed, the first floor has been framed and framing is in progress on the second and third floor.  Electricians and Plumbers are busy adding the rough-ins.  Most of the concrete has been poured for the flooring of the Land O’ Lakes Center.  Steel is going up. That is one thing you can see on the webcams

  • 2017: The interior construction will happen
  • October 2017: Target occupancy date
  • Spring 2018: We anticipate teaching classes

 Current discussions have focused on proofing the plans for details of the interior layout including floor plans, all building fixtures and furniture. Developing an interior design for wall and floor finishes have also been on-going.

 "Even with the cold weather, construction continues at a furiuos pace. From the outside things look slow, but a lot is happening inside" said Dr. Terry Stewart.  

   You can now watch the demolition and construction LIVE!

Dr. Mathew said: "These two new facilities will greatly add to an investment in the future of Purdue students to better prepare them for careers in agriculture and the biosciences. The state-of-the-art laboratories and classrooms will foster innovations that will significantly advance our programs that directly serve Indiana stakeholders and the animal industries nationally and globally."

Professor of Animals Sciences and liaison for this building project, Dr. Terry Stewart said: "The most exciting thing about the new building is that for the first time, all of Animal Sciences Faculty and campus staff will be in one building. Faculty, staff and most importantly, students, will have a campus home."
