At least one construction project on Ohio State’s campus is nearly a fourth of a year ahead of schedule.

The newly constructed Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Chemistry Building is set for a grand opening ribbon-cutting ceremony on Oct. 1, 2014, about three months before its original estimated completion date, said Stuart Cooper, chair of the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Department.

Construction began on the $126 million project, located between 19th and Woodruff avenues, in June 2012 and is largely funded by the state of Ohio. The state provided more than $67 million through capital funding, according to budget information emailed to The Lantern by Integrated Physical Planning program manager Charles Finlay.
