PROVO, Utah (AP) -- Utah Valley University will build a $1.5 million new home for it's facilities, motor pool and parking departments.
UVU Associate Vice President of Facilities Jim Michaelis says the current home for the departments -- literally a house on the northeast edge of the Orem campus -- is too small to meet the needs of the growing school.
UVU's Board of Trustees voted to approve construction of the two-story, 12,000 square-foot building on Thursday. The existing 6,000 square-foot building will be torn down.
UVU Vice President of Administration and Legislative Affairs Val Peterson says the design and bid process is already complete.
Construction is expected to begin soon. The building should be ready for use next summer. It will house 25 employees.
