University of Maine community members are invited to learn about the largest upcoming construction project in recent history at UMaine at an information session 10–11 a.m. Nov. 19 in Hill Auditorium, in the Engineering and Science Research Building.

Construction on the $77 million Ferland Engineering Education and Design Center is set to being in late spring 2020. And it’s expected the 105,000-square-foot center will be open for classes in fall 2022.

Representatives from UMaine Facilities Management and Consigli Construction, construction manager for the project, then will talk about the construction schedule and what to expect during construction.
