Construction is progressing on Grand Valley State University’s L. William Seidman Center on Front Avenue in downtown Grand Rapids. Pioneer Construction raised the final beam February 21 to complete the steel erection for the Seidman Center project.
Before the beam was raised, Grand Valley students, faculty and staff from the Seidman College of Business had an opportunity to sign the beam. President Thomas J. Haas, Seidman College of Business Dean H. James Williams and Seidman Campaign Co-Chair David Frey also signed the beam.
The new Seidman Center will support the Seidman College of Business’ growing reputation as the premier business school in the Midwest. It will also house the Small Business and Technology Development Center, a federal/state/Grand Valley-sponsored program that creates and sustains jobs across Michigan.
The building will be Grand Valley’s 16th LEED-certified building; it will open for classes in the fall of 2013.
