TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The University of Kansas is asking to expand its new School of Business building before construction even begins.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/1jM9ghE ) the school plans to ask the Kansas Board of Regents on Thursday for permission to expand the proposed building.
The four-story building was expected to cost about $65.7 million. But the school of business is growing faster than expected, prompting the request for more offices and teaching space.
The estimated cost of the addition is $6.8 million. The university is seeking private funds for the expansion.
The project will be funded with $62.5 million in private funds and $10 million in university funds.
The building is expected to be completed in time for the 2016-17 academic year.
