Most of you must have seen our college headquarters shrouded behind construction walls. It is being remodeled with a fresh, new design. Completion of construction is expected to be in late 2019. So what should the next honorably selected building be that gets renovated? The College of Economics & Business is the leading contender.
Building 22 is the most dated building on our campus. It has inherited our school title since the foundation. In 1982, this original fixture was established with a total surface area of 9950m2 and has done its time up until now. Due to the inevitable passing of time, many reasons for refurbishing the building have quickly accumulated. Many students and professors from Economics & Business have had a difficult time with lecture rooms in fall, especially during the rainy season because of leaking ceilings. This was especially a nightmare for cleaning personnel. To make matters worse, this has caused the building to suffer from excess dampness resulting in many complaints about the building being too cold and wet. Furthermore, apprehension about earthquakes is mounting exponentially in recent months due to several occurrences. Yoon Jong-gu from facility affairs made a statement to mitigate students’ concerns, “Since Building 22 is the most antiquated architecture in our college, we will come up with a strong seismic reinforcement plan as well as remodeling. We have received all necessary confirmation from the government in order to carry out the project, so we will start designing blueprints next year with a budget of 13 billion won.”
Nevertheless, along with blueprints, they are obligated to find a temporary space for the Department of Economics & Business to stay during the remodeling in 2019. Precisely, they need to negotiate with the project evaluating office, but they are strongly considering the Global Lifelong Education Center to be a temporary building for the department, as it is currently being used for headquarters. Let’s look forward to seeing our brand-new Building 22 in 2022!
