Construction to Begin on Information Systems Building

Wake Forest University begins construction this month on a 70,000-square-foot building that will house its information systems department, military science (ROTC) classrooms and offices, a food court and a book store.

A groundbreaking ceremony for the Information Systems Building was held May 15, at the construction site located immediately north of Wake Forest’s Worrell Professional Center.

AMP Inc. officials will participate in the ceremony for the building, which will include a lobby formally named the AMP Information Systems Lobby. AMP, an international communications components and cabling products company, has been formally recognized by Wake Forest as its preferred supplier of computer network infrastructure products. The new building will feature a number of AMP products, including wireless computer networking and fiber optic cables.

The two-story building is expected to be completed by June 1998. Its first level will be occupied by the information systems department, military science, a 200-seat food court and a book store. No decision has been made on its second-floor occupants.
