Construction Masonry Building Dedication

Pennsylvania College of Technology formally dedicated a new main-campus home for masonry instruction Aug. 16. The 17,829-square-foot, single-story Construction Masonry Building, designed by Murray Associates Architects, P.C., of Harrisburg, features a large, open lab area and reflects the latest in “green” technologies. Hands-on skills in stone, brick and block masonry, as well as fireplace construction, will be practiced by students in the new lab. During the dedication for the $2 million building, college President Davie Jane Gilmour and Board of Directors Chairman Robert E. Dunham finished off placement of a keystone containing the names of the college and the facility, as well as the college’s Wildcat logo.
