Construction has begun on an addition to the University of Louisville‘s School of Dentistry in the Medical Center. After an official groundbreaking in October 2009, the dirt has really started to move on the $40 million projects that will provide much needed space and represents the first major upgrade to the School since the building was built in 1970.

Construction will add over 20,000 square feet of new space and renovate an additional 200,000 square feet. Technology improvements will be a key feature of the new facility with a move to digital radiography and high-tech classrooms.

Designed by Luckett & Farley of Louisville, the addition will seek LEED certification for sustainable architecture and will include a more efficient HVAC system and lighting controls that respond to the actual occupancy of the building. The addition will maintain the general lines of the 1970s era concrete structures but will include a more open and inviting glass main entrance.
