The College of Engineering and Computer Science has undergone a five-month renovation, having replaced 15 air-handler units and exhaust lines and 5 fume hoods in several labs to help improve airflow through the building, UCF has said.

As part of the renovation to the Engineering 1 building, a new main distribution panel will allow for an increased amount of electricity to flow through all four floors which cover classrooms, labs, and an academic office.


“Additional power is needed to help support the research and teaching missions of the college,” UCF News & Information news editor Gene Kruckmeyer said.


The building will be closed beginning December 15, 2017, through January 7, 2018, while crews continue the renovation.

A new roof for both the Engineering 1 & 2 buildings has also been planned.
