Van Horn Construction of Russellville will build the $10.1 million residence hall scheduled to open in fall 2013 at Arkansas Tech University.  
 
The Arkansas Tech Board of Trustees awarded the residence hall construction contract during its regular monthly meeting at the Ross Pendergraft Library and Technology Center on Thursday.
 
Van Horn Construction was the low bidder among six firms that submitted bids for the project.
 
Once complete, the five-story, 64,170-square foot residence hall (shown here in an artist's rendering) will accommodate 290 Arkansas Tech students per semester. It will be located on M Street between Wilson Residence Hall and Hughes Residence Hall.
 
In other business on Thursday, the Arkansas Tech Board of Trustees approved:
 
*a transfer of $26,339 from the unappropriated educational and general fund balance to waterproof the exterior walls of the Administration Building basement and stop a water leak in that area;
 
*a letter of intent from the College of Arts and Humanities that outlines plans for a new Associate of Arts degree in Ozark-Ouachita Studies, which the college hopes to begin offering in fall 2012;
 
*and a transfer of $48,530 from the unappropriated educational and general fund balance to fund completion of a new 82-space parking lot at Arkansas Tech-Ozark Campus.
