The area surrounding the new SIS building is still a hard-hat zone, as construction continues on AU’s green gem. University architect Jerry Gager said the contractor is currently finishing the foundations’ piers and the footings for the cisterns that will collect rain water for reuse. Soon, workers will build the foundation walls and parking decks. The 70,000-square-foot, environmentally-friendly building is slated to open in May 2010.
