WSU: Top 10 capital projects

Washington State’s largest projects are chiefly a mix of research buildings and residence halls.

Fortunately, WSU recognizes that there’s more student life than sleep and study: Also on the list are an art museum and new digs for the football program. And what would a wine research building be without a 3,500-bottle wine library? Probably a lot less popular.

The projects below are either in planning or construction, or were completed in 2013. The start and finish dates refer to construction. Buildings are generally ready for occupancy a month or two after construction ends.

The information is from Capital Planning and Development and other university sources.
