The University of Connecticut Board of Trustees will meet Wednesday to consider a number of project budgets that include renovations to South Campus, the Engineering Building and a revised budget for the third phase of UConn's technology park.

The board will consider revising the budget for the Innovation Partnership Building to $162 million. The multi-story research facility will be approximately 112,000 square feet and contain labs and offices.

Construction would be funded by state general obligation bonds, which were approved by the state legislature for the purpose of building a research-oriented technology park on UConn's campus. The total bond budget for the project is $172 million.

Plans to demolish the UConn Health Center's Dowling North and South buildings will also be considered by the board. That project would cost an estimated $1.07 million. Additionally, plans to spend $598,000 to relocate the Anechoic Chamber at the Health Center will be considered.

A $3 million plan to fix infiltration problems and undertake exterior repairs to South Campus will also be considered. Finally, the board will consider a $92.5 million plan to develop a state of the art laboratory for research in bio-nano engineering, which would be funded by the UConn 2000 capital bond allotment.
