Expansion In Progress At Daytona Beach Campus
All things considered, it didn't
take long for Embry Riddle Aeronautical University to pull
itself up by the bootstraps and develop a plan to not
only replace buildings on its Daytona Beach campus that were
destroyed by December's tornadoes that ravaged parts of Volusia
County, but to fast track expansion projects already on the
ERAU President John Johnson tells Central Florida News
13 the university is building three new "icon" campus
buildings as well as a new flight line building.
Renovations are now underway on the Gill Robb Wilson Flight
Center Complex, adjacent to the Daytona Beach International
Airport, which was originally constructed in 1972. The renovations,
according to plans, will provide an open, naturally lit flight
dispatch area closely resembling private FBO's.
On the fast-track are plans for a new world campus building and
conference center, along with a new student and administrative
center. Other building plans include an academic hall with 56,720
net square footage (NSF), a 12,310 NSF fitness center; and a 65,947
NSF 256-bed residence hall.
The tornado damage, said Johnson, "gave us an opportunity to
accelerate some of the plans we already had for new buildings."
There is also a new fleet of airplanes on the way for students
to use to replace the 50 that were destroyed during the storm,
as ANN reported.
