The Vice Chancellor, Prof. Mabel Imbuga Monday led members of the University Management Board (UMB) in inspecting three of the ongoing construction works in the University. Among the inspected works include the four-story Medical Laboratory Sciences (MLS) Complex which is expected to ease the strain on teaching and research facilities occasioned by the increase in numbers of students pursuing medical sciences at the institution.
While briefing the Board members on the progress of multi-million complex, the site coordinator, Eng. Charles Kinywa, indicated that the building will be complete at the fall of July 2013. The complex will host lecture halls, medical science laboratories, a resource centre and staff offices.
Prof. Imbuga’s team then visited the site where the New Administration Building is coming up, a facility whose prime aim is to address office space constraints in the institution. The building will also house a 350 capacity auditorium and a ramp enabled underground parking space.
The Board members finally visited the site for the construction of a 600 meter link road that is expected to foster accessibility between Hall Seven and Biomechanical and Environmental Engineering Department (BEED). The construction of the link road christened BEED Road is undertaken by Danta Engineering Company and is slated to come to an end mid-August.
