Boise State began site mobilization late September 2017 for the upcoming construction of the new Facilities and Central Receiving building. Once complete, the building will house administration from Facilities Operations and Maintenance (FOM) as well as Central Receiving (CR). The new facility will be located on the southwest corner of Belmont Drive and Euclid Avenue.
The project is an 8,500-square foot prefabricated steel building with metal siding, allowing for high ceilings and flexible interior layouts – ideal for warehouse/receiving space. In addition, offices and workspaces will flow more efficiently with the receiving portions of the building. Most of the structure and exterior finishes are currently being prepared off-site, making for a quick on-site assembly once ready.
The space will offer a larger, more efficient space for all occupants, while also including better delivery docks and easier access from Euclid Avenue for Central Receiving.
The project is expected to reach substantial completion in early February, with final completion in early March. FOM and CR will relocate to the new facility from their current space at 1455 University Drive, which will be a portion of the site footprint for the new Micron Center for Materials Research.
