The TA Loving/Barnhill team set the last beam of the new East Carolina University student center yesterday. Scheduled to open in November 2018, the Union measures 210,000-SF and includes a black box theater, a 14,000-SF ballroom, six dining options and a 24-by-42 outdoor Pirate Vision digital screen with a 700-space parking deck adjacent.
More than 1,200 workers and more than 45 contractors have worked six days a week, providing in excess of 330,000 hours of labor to date.
“It took thousands and thousands of people involved in the success of this project,” said Tom Daniel, ECU alumnus and senior project manager for TA Loving/Barnhill. “It took more than 1,200 individuals with boots on the ground to put this building in place. They have worked days, nights and weekends to bring us to this point today.”
Congratulations to the TA Loving/Barnhill team!
