Indiana University will break ground Friday on the nearly $22 million clinical building at the IU School of Dentistry in Indianapolis. The university will also announce an alumni donation that will lead to the naming of the building.
The three-story, 45,000 square-foot facility will provide 125 state-of-the-art clinical treatment rooms for the school. Construction is expected to be complete in the spring of 2018.
The ground breaking is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. Friday. IU President Michael McRobbie will be on hand for the event, along with IUPUI Chancellor Nasser Paydar and IU School of Dentistry Dean John Williams.
The school is Indiana’s only dental school and has been in operation for nearly 140 years.
