With an occupancy date of March 2003, construction of the Congress Avenue Building (CAB) continued on schedule in late June. The 450,000-square-foot building was designed to increase teaching and laboratory space and is part of a $500 million investment in medical school facilities. After excavating the site, crews began foundation work, pouring vertical walls and footings. The work was expected to continue through August, and in September, delivery of steel beams is to pave the way for erection of the building’s skeleton.
